Kimberly recalls the moment that would change her life forever – the moment that her husband Corey proposed. For months, Corey had planned a vacation to Cabo and coordinated an elaborate proposal. The itinerary included sailing aboard a yacht that would take the couple to Lover’s Beach and the Arch of San Lucas with a photographer aboard to capture portraits “for Christmas cards.” As they posed on the bow of the boat, Corey dropped to one knee and presented her with a ring. Of course, Kimberly said “Yes!”
Kimberly and Corey were married at Maison Lafitte in Mandeville where they also celebrated their reception.
Kimberly describes standing at the altar with Corey as her favorite part of the day. “Looking into the eyes of the man I have loved for over six years and feeling such happiness and love – I just cannot describe that type of feeling!” she shares.
After the ceremony, Kimberly and Corey were ready to celebrate with friends and family and dance the night away. They treated their guests to a Champagne bubbly bar, mini king cakes and they orchestrated a sparkler exit before heading to a cozy after-party at The Barley Oak with close family and friends.
“It was so fun to continue the party and have those we cherish most with us!” Kimberly shares.
