Having arrived by cruise ship, they and their guests were whisked over to London House for a secluded beach wedding followed by a splash in the sea, a bbq, a Sting Ray City trip on Happy Hooker, shopping in Georgetown and then back to the boat! Â Whew! Â What a day! Â Thanks to Cassandra at Diamond Events for throwing all this together on short notice. Â See the complete wedding shot by my wife and myself at this link.
My friends, James and Danielle, asked me to take a picture of them for publication in an upcoming issue of a Ritz-Carlton Residences magazine. Â The story says:
“We both really enjoy the fact that we can work hard, but at the end of the day, we relax in paradise.”
I couldn’t agree more! Â This photo was taken only a short walk from my house. Â I suppose I live in paradise too!
Danielle has been delivering dream weddings to her clients at Octopus Events for many years and has recently embarked on an innovative venture to assist brides planning weddings in the Cayman Islands. Â Her new web site, Crystal Blue Wedding Studio, has already become a top resource for brides in Cayman. Â I’ve know James since my triathlon days in another life. Â James works at REM Services, bringing landlord and tenant together in Cayman.
Its nice to have happy neighbors. Â James and Danielle fit the bill.
Local Publishers, David and Vicki Legge, along with long time YCLA sponsor, Andres Â Ugland, arrive at the event.

Director of Food & Beverage at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, Guntram Merl along with VP and General Manager, Â Franz Ferschke.
DJ Craig Urchyshyn of One World Entertainment helped pull together Cayman’s top talent for the event. Â I have often meant to give Craig some cudos for being a real asset at any function. Â Not only does he spin the right disc, he’s also a self-described problem solver with some very interesting travel tales and a cool disposition. Â One person I’d like to spend more time with.. after work.. after I get some rest.
Melissa Wolfe is not only a great photographer, loving mother, and the best wife in the world; she has also served as event coordinator for the YCLA since its inception eleven years ago.
My wife, Melissa, is the hot chick on the right. Â The hot chick on the left is The Director of the National Gallery, Natalie Urquhart.
Miles McPhearson, author of the book, Do Something – Make Your Life Count, delivered a humorous and inspirational speech about chickens and eagles.
And Finally… Drumroll….
Congratulations the the recipient of this year’s Young Caymanian Leadership Award, Collin Anglin! Â Go Collin!
