Christina & John

Apr. 3, 2009 at Val Vista Lakes

 Christina Harvey wasn’t convinced that John Chapman, her boyfriend of six years, was serious when he got down on bended knee during a cruise in June. “I told him to get up because onlookers would think he wasn’t kidding,” explains Christina. Back on land, the couple planned a Friday-night ceremony that was mostly traditional except for an unmatched number in the bridal party: two bridesmaids and four groomsmen. The most memorable moment of the evening was provided by the maid of honor, Christina’s twin sister Alexandra, who officially welcomed John into the family with a teary-eyed speech. After a casual next-day picnic at the Farm at South Mountain, the couple set sail on a cruise through the Panama Canal.
