When Kim and Sam first met five and a half years ago little did they know that their meeting would lead them down the aisles in an elegant destination wedding in the Bahamas.

Sam a banker and Kim a designer were introduced through a mutual friend on a Tuesday night in Los Angeles, California.  As Sam tells the story when they first met Kim wasn’t a big fan but that soon changed, as after a few tequila shots they really hit it off.  And on March 26 they celebrated their undying love to each other in an elegant destination wedding at the Cove, Atlantis Paradise Island.

The vows the couple exchanged during their wedding ceremony were written by them and a reflection of how their relationship had flourished into a spiritual, emotional, and intellectual bond between two people.

And I am sure that once you have read their vows you would agree with me that they are truly inspirational. So here are Kim and Sam’s vows...

"I promise to give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give.  I promise to accept you the way you are. I fell in love with you for the qualities, abilities, and outlook on life that you have, and won’t try to reshape you in a different image. I promise to respect you as a person with your own interests, desires, and needs, and to realize that those are sometimes different, but no less important than my own. I promise to keep myself open to you, to let you see through the window of my personal world into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams. I promise to grow along with you, to be willing to face change as we both change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting. And finally, I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how … completely and forever.”

And Kim and Sam’s recipe for a long and happy marriage “trust, honesty, humor, relaxation, friendship and always listening.”

There were 10 friends making up the bridal party and the wedding was attended by another 60+ family and friends,  a real testament to the love and support they have for this couple.

The outdoor wedding ceremony was held in the Athletic Garden and the guest enjoyed an unforgettable dinner reception at Fathoms.  A truly unique indoor venue with its breathtaking view of the underwater ruins of Atlantis.
