Destination Wedding Dream Comes True - Rincon Puerto Rico

Dream Wedding in Rincon Puerto Rico

This story is one for the annals of Destination Weddings here in Rincon Puerto Rico history. I am sure you will enjoy the tale of two people who braved the elements of nature to be married in our little piece of paradise.

Last June I was contacted by Alison and her fiancé Andrew. They were from Long Island, N.Y. and were planning a small wedding at one of our local villas. They were only interested in a small casual affair because of a limited budget. Their main concern was to offer their guests good food. They also needed an officiant to perform the ceremony as they wanted to be legally married in Puerto Rico.
As the months went by they suggested that they might be interested in a photographer and someone to perform at the ceremony. By the time November arrive Alison was interested in a tropical tasting cake, salon services and floral arrangements.
In January I had advised Alison and Andre that there was no chance of having a wedding on the beach at their villa because of beach erosion due to storms. I had suggested the beautiful historical lighthouse here in Rincon Puerto Rico as a possible site for her ceremony. All plans were set for that site and the town of Rincon was willing to help with the transporting of all her guests from the villa to the lighthouse in one of their colorful vans.

Fast forward to February 9th of this year and we find a blizzard called Nemo hits Long Island and leaves 34 “ of snow on the day the couple are planning to leave for Puerto Rico .After hours of shoveling snow trying to find their car and braving  the conditions on the roads and highways this couple arrived at  JFK airport. What a relief to find out the airport was opened and their flight to Aquadilla would leave.
The happy ending is told in one picture.
