For couples who want to remember the joy and excitement surrounding their walk down the aisle,  Hotel Galvez & Spa®, A Wyndham Grand® Hotel, invites couples to relive that special moment and renew their commitment to each other during its annual Galvez Wedding Vow Renewal on Saturday, June 13, 2015. 

The ceremony will be held at 10:00 a.m. on hotel grounds and will be officiated by Justice of the Peace Jim Schweitzer. Following the ceremony, a small reception will be hosted by the hotel. Couples have the option to join in the complimentary wedding vow renewal and can stay the night and enjoy the Hotel Galvez Wedding Vow Renewal package. Couples also receive a courtesy bouquet and boutonniere for the ceremony and professional photos are available for purchase.  

“We’ve had couples ranging from one year to more than 60 years of marriage renew their wedding vows during our annual ceremony,” says General Manager Steve Cunningham. “Judge Schweitzer does a wonderful job in taking couples back to their wedding day and making this day special.”

The ceremony is scheduled in June to honor the most popular month of matrimony and the 104th anniversary of Hotel Galvez & Spa®. The Hotel Galvez Wedding Vow Renewal package includes participation in the wedding vow renewal ceremony on Saturday morning and reception for participating couples. The package also provides a room for two, champagne accompanied by chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival and rose petals on the bed as part of the hotel’s turndown service.
