maria elena and bert's all white wedding

Maria Elena, a lovely Venezuelan friend and the owner of the restaurant at Bahia Redonda Marina until 2007, met cruiser Bert and it was love at first sight.  After a whirlwind courtship the couple married in an all white ceremony in Puerto la Cruz.  The entire affair was lovely from the start.  Below are the pictures from the "Before" party followed by pictures of the wedding.  We all had a lot of fun.

Above and below are fellow cruisers and friends.  Maria had a bus pick us all up at the marina and take us to the restaurant where the event was held.
