Lisa and Ben, gave their “I do” word to each other here at Portofino Beach Resort on September 18th 2010. Their family flew specially over to Belize, making sure they would not miss any minute of this beautiful day. Lisa’s dress was stunning… and her wedding bouquet was made from Green Cymbidium Orchids which we specially flew over from Mexico.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures taken by Kay Scott.
