Krysten & Joel’s Wedding

We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to add our best wishes to the promises that will be made before God which shall unite Krysten Marie Wilson & Joel Vincent Brown in marriage.

Should there be anyone who has cause why this couple should not be united in
marriage, they must speak now or forever hold their peace.

The “Giving Away”

Who is it that brings this woman to this man?

Jeff Wilson, father answer

“I do”, “I do on behalf of her Mother & I”

“Thank you Mr & Mrs Wilson. You may all be seated

Reading by Elizabeth

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered. It keeps no record of the wrongs, love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” – Corinthians 13:4-8

Opening Remarks

Joel and Krysten marriage is an affirmation of life, an undying commitment, a spiritual, emotional, and intellectual bond between two people. It is created from the purest of friendship, respect and love. Therefore, the institution of marriage is not to be entered into lightly, because it symbolizes commitment on every level.
Joel & Krysten, together you will continue to meet the challenges and obstacles of life head on. As Marriage is an adventure in the most intimate of human relationships. It is the mutual commitment of two people sincerely in love who share the same dreams about life.

But more than that, it is the intimate sharing of two lives. It is a sharing that does not diminish but enhances the individuality of each partner.

Joel & Krysten your marriage does not mark the beginning of a new relationship; rather, it is an acknowledgment and celebration, of a relationship that has been flourishing since you met and your first date at “Houlihans” on New Years Day some 4 years ago.
Joel and Krysten, love is the longing two people feel for one another. It is the need to share, in body and spirit, the warmth, serenity and peace two people can give to one another. A simple touch, a hand held at a time of uncertainty. This is what it means to be intimately human.

Declaration of Consent

Joel responds: “I Will”
And, Krysten Marie Wilson will you have Joel Vincent Brown to be your wedded husband, to live together in the estate of matrimony? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health, and, forsaking all others, keep yourself only for him so long as you both shall live?
Krysten’s responds: “I Will”

Exchange of Vows…

In the presence of God, and before these witnesses, I, Joel Vincent Brown, take you Krysten Marie Wilson, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; in joy and in sorrow; to love and to cherish and to be faithful to you alone, as long as we both shall live.”

And now Krysten…

In the presence of God, and before these witnesses, I, Krysten Marie Wilson, take you Joel Vincent Brown, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; in joy and in sorrow; to love and to cherish and to be faithful to you alone, as long as we both shall live.”

Your wedding rings represents the unconditional love that you have for one another and are a symbol of the vows that you will make today.

Joel, take this ring, put it on Krysten’s finger and repeat after me…

“With this ring, I give you my promise: that from this day forward, you shall not walk alone. My heart will be your shelter, and my arms your home as we walk together through all things. With this ring, I give you my heart. I have no greater gift to give.”

Bahamas Returns to Normal After Hurricane Irene

Bahamas Beach After Hurricane Iren

Bahamas Beach After Hurricane Irene

The Bahamas has returned to normal after Hurricane Irene with most hotel and resort properties in the primary tourism areas of Nassau and Grand Bahama are now open for business.

However, Sandals Resorts Royal Bahamian and Breezes Bahamas All Inclusive Resort both located on Cable Beach in Nassau have been closed for repairs following Irene.

Sandals has transferred all of its booking to its other resort property in the Bahamas, Sandals Emerald Bay, Exuma and Breezes Bahamas to adjacent hotel properties on Cable Beach, the Sheraton and Wyndham resorts.

As for the other hotels and resorts properties on Nassau, Paradise Island and Grand Bahama Island including Atlantis Bahamas, experienced only limited landscaping damage, power loss and flooding from Hurricane Irene.

The world famous Nassau Straw Market was not as fortunate as the markets temporarily house in    makeshift tented facility was completely destroyed. The good news for vendors is that they  scheduled to move into a newly constructed Nassau Straw Market in downtown Nassau’s Bay Street in September.

Operations at both the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau and the cruise port Prince George Wharf have also resumed operation with minimal delays expected for departing passengers at LPIA.

These pictures  are evident that the Bahamas weather is back to normal and the beaches are as pristine and crystal clear as ever. So Come on down and experience why “its better in the Bahamas!”

Hurricane Irene Affecting the Bahamas Weather

The Bahamas weather is currently being impacted by hurricane Irene with most of the Islands in the chain being affected.

Resulting in significant changes in the Bahamas weather that you maybe familiar with in this tropical paradise. But like sunshine,  hurricane are also apart of the tropical experience.

Here are a few pictures of what I’ve been able to see of my garden view of hurricane Irene impact on the Cable Beach, the Bahamian Rivera on Nassau, New Providence.

So how does this Bahamas weather affect your plans to travel to the Bahamas in the next few days?

Well, hurricane are not new to the Bahamas and most hotel properties are adequately prepared to accommodate you.  And most should resume normal business operation once hurricane Irene has passed so it is important for you to contract your resort for information on what exactly is happening at that resort property.

And if you are still not sure that you would still like to make your planned trip to the Bahamas, the Ministry of Tourism is working with its industry partners and hotels to extend all possible courtesies to those affected as guided by the industry’s recommended hurricane cancellation policy.

However, the major cruise ports in Nassau and Grand Bahama Island will be closed until Saturday, Aug. 27.  Passengers with reservations should contact cruise lines directly with questions.

While the Bahamas weather is not adequately reported in the international news media particularly because of their lack of familiarity with the geography of The Bahamas, you can follow the progress of Hurricane Irene through the islands of the Bahamas by using the links at –
