Congratulations to Shivoan Bodden and Brent Cunha for a fun wedding with lots of local flair! Â Starting with the bride getting ready at the Westin Casuarina Beach Resort and ending with a fabulous reception dinner at Luca/Caribbean Club on Seven Mile Beach, this wedding had plenty of venue changes in between, including the ceremony at St. Ignatius Catholic Church and photos at Grand Old House, Camana Bay and Cayman’s newest hotspot Tiki Beach! Â What a whirlwind of a wedding day. Â FUN! FUN! FUN! Â And they are still partying at Luca! Â Thanks to Celebrations for the added color and to Grand Limousine for the cool ride. Â Check out this link to a fun slide show with more photos to music. The photos in the blog post are all mine. Â I wish I could take credit for all the photos on theÂ slideshow but the truth is my wife took a whole bunch of them. Then she took off Â to go photograph another wedding on her own! She’s so cool.
It sure is beautiful without light pollution. Â This dock used to have lights and you couldn’t see the stars! Â Hurricanes are good for something. No more dock lights!
We had to say good bye to our “first born” on monday. Â We were lucky. Â He was only sick for a few days and never really suffered; but it was not easy to let him go.
tuffi wasn’t just special. Â He was famous.
He was happiest running on the beach in Little Cayman. Â So we made a spot for him beside the path on our lot in Bloody Bay. Â He will be warm and happy there.
Then we sat in the dark Â and watched the stars. Â There are no street lights now so the night sky is amazing. Â Suddenly (the first time I’ve ever seen one in my 28 years here) a lightning bug appeared and flew right past our faces and down the path… then came back and flew only inches from our noses for the second time. Â It reminded me how tuffi used to run up and down the path smiling at us. Â The only lightning bug we saw that night and the only one I’ve seen in the Cayman Islands. Â Ever! Â What do you think?
Well, it POURED ALL DAY until about an hour before the wedding. Â I had my wipers on for most of the drive up to Cayman Kai. Â Then, suddenly, the sun burst out and I had to put my shades on! Â The pre-wedding drama just made the day more special. Â It isn’t fair that Andy and Renee both look like supermodels AND are obviously so happy together. Â But, hey, thats life! Â Andy could barley hold himself together waiting for his bride. Â Several DEEP breaths Â (and a couple of vodka red bulls) seemed to do the trick. Â I couldn’t help but smile when Renee walked down the isle to some ROCKIN’ music. Â Very cool and different. Â The wedding couldn’t have gone more smoothly, complete with a perfect sunset followed by some good Caymanian cooking enjoyed by just the closest friends and family on the beach in Cayman Kai.
