A Honeymoon Gift for Ivonne and Andrew

On August 12, 2012 Lara from Romantic Travel Belize shared a special gift in person with Ivonne and Andrew.  If you have not read their love story and what happened to them, let me invite you to click on the following link to read all their stories leading up to and including the wedding day https://27miracles.com/category/a-gift-of-love-wedding-ivonne-and-andrew-81212/

Prior to the wedding day, Lara from Belize had offered a 4 day 3 night  stay at Tranquility Bay  Resort in Belize.   27 Miracles had a big hurdle to get over to make this honeymoon happen for Ivonne and Andrew, airfare!! 27 Miracles started the fund raiser, WTSP Channel 10 interviewed Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles, Ivonne and Andrew in St Pete to reach out to people to donate the airfare and they were to contact Rosie for the details. It was a hard job to keep Ivonne and Andrew clueless as to their destination.

Andrew worked for an airline, but they did not fly to the island of Belize.  However it did fly to other places stateside that could assist with the connecting flight to Belize.  The funds were raised and we were able to get them a flight with the assistance of Andrew’s mom, to Belize; about 5 days before the wedding( talk about close!!!).  Here was the catch, in order for Ivonne to fly on the airline that Andrew worked for they had to be married!  Oh my, what to do as there was a two week paper work process?  This was started simultaneous to looking for the connecting flight and raising funds for that flight.

On the day of Ivonne and Andrew’s food tasting, Ivonne suggested that she  get married  in order to book her flight.  Luckily Marcus Moore wedding officiant was on site and quickly pulled up his vows on his I Phone and to work he went making a nice Christian ceremony on the spot.  Ivonne and Andrew were lined up outside to practice the “rehearsal” ( wink wink, only Donna Cook from the Sheraton and Rosie Moore knew about the surprise impromptu wedding ceremomy) then just before beginning the ceremony, they let their parents know this was for real.  The father of the bride said wait she si still my daughter for two weeks, I will consent for legal paperwork only.    He did tell Andrew hands off his princess until the wedding night!!!

It was the first wedding ceremony at the newly renovated . Sheraton  in Lake Buena Vista.
