Welcome. We gather here on God's beautiful beach to celebrate the joyful union of this man, (Groom) and this woman, (Bride) in Holy Matrimony.
February 27, 2017
Robert and Debra chose to have the Hand and Beach Ceremony performed on the beach of the JW Marriott on Marco Island, Florida. Their five children, other family members and friends attended. The children, Jenna (31), Brittany (28), Matthew (26), Meghan (23) and TJ (20) were told they would be sharing in this marriage. Each child was given a letter with an explanation of what it meant for them. When they stood together, the word spelled out UNITY. It was beautiful. Debra handed each of them a white bag with their block of wood engraved with the letter assigned to them by age. As they opened their gift, Robert read to each of them what their letter represented. They were all surprised, but so loving. The photos can be seen on my Weddings by Phyllis Facebook page. The groom is a vice president at Robotics Engineering. His wife is a teacher. The famiies have since returned to their respective homes.
