SURPRISE!!! Marie and Phil got married!
Sunday, June 24th, 2012
The invitation was subtle, no hint of any shenanigans afoot – just a party to celebrate at Casa Caracol. Never one to refuse an invitation to misbehave, The San Pedro Sun’s Mary Gonzalez headed out in beach cocktail attire, and arrived to find a great party in full swing. There was no sign of Marie, but Phil, looking dapper, certainly was making the rounds, and everyone was having a great time. Gino and company kept the music going, with impressive guitar skills and vocals to add to the atmosphere. The rain outside could pour all night long, as everyone was ensconced safe and warm indoors, enjoying their rum punch, sangria, Belikin or Pimm’s.
There was a lull in the music, and everyone’s attention was called to the front where Phil was putting on a blazer, and Jim Janmohammed stood at the ready. What was happening?! Just then, at the door, stood a beautiful young lady holding a bouquet of blue and white, and behind her – could it be?! It was Marie Carroll, looking absolutely radiant, and oh-so-beautiful in a gorgeous white wedding dress.
That’s right, it was a WEDDING! What a surprise indeed! Everyone gasped, and then hooted and hollered as applause filled the air while the blushing bride walked down to meet Phil, her handsome, smiling groom. Friends teared up, sighing and smiling at the most fantastic surprise wedding they had ever witnessed. Jim led the short, very emotional ceremony, after which the party picked back up in full swing, with bride and groom being engulfed in hugs of congratulations, followed by lots of dancing, eating and of course, imbibing.
Indeed, that was the most brilliant move on Phil and Marie’s part – what a memorable wedding! Congratulations to you both, and may you forever keep surprising each other! xx
