Warm Tropical Breezes
Bobby served in the U. S. Army for five years and had only been back a month when he met Catherine at a quaint café in Rice Village. Currently, he works for the Pearland Police Department. “It was the first Christmas morning in our new home when Bobby proposed!” Catherine said.
The Excellence Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic was the perfect tropical setting for this lovely bride and groom. In lieu of gifts, they had a charity registry benefiting Wounded Warrior Foundation & Annie’s Angel’s Texas.
“Our photographer was Arturo Castillo from Photo Souvenir. The gown is from David’s Bridal. We didn’t have a wedding party. However, there were Houstonians present: our parents John and Debbie Valco and Robert and Caren Manzo, our witnesses Heather and Jared Williams, and family friends Lauren and Linda LeBlanc. Something unique about the wedding was my father & I came out
on a horse drawn carriage. The ceremony was performed in Dominican Republic’s official language Spanish and translated into English. My great aunt and uncle Harold & June Weatherwax were in attendance and celebrating their 61st wedding anniversary on the same day!”
