Hotel Galvez & Spa®, A Wyndham Grand® Hotel, invites Galveston area couples and visitors to renew their commitment to each other during its annual Galvez Wedding Vow Renewal on Saturday, June 7. In 2013, more than 20 couples renewed their vows including area couples Yolanda and Manuel Corella, who celebrated 63 years and Rodney and Ann Reeves, celebrating a momentous 56 years. In a romantic twist, the General Manager, Steve Cunningham, shared in the celebration by re-committing to his wife of 28 years, Becky Cunningham.

The 10 a.m. ceremony, held on hotel grounds, is officiated by Justice of the Peace Jim Schweitzer. Following the ceremony, the hotel hosts a small reception for participating couples. Couples also receive a courtesy bouquet and boutonniere for the ceremony and professional photos are available for purchase. 

"The Galvez Wedding Vow Renewal gives couples the chance to remember their wedding day and to celebrate their commitment to each other,” says Cunningham. “Judge Schweitzer does a wonderful job in taking couples back to their wedding day and making this day one to treasure.”

The ceremony is scheduled in June to honor the most popular month of matrimony and the 103rd anniversary of Hotel Galvez & Spa®. 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. Advance reservations are required for both. For reservations, call (409) 765-7721 or visit and click on “Special Offers.”
