“I M., take thee N., to be my wedded Wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy ordinance; and thereto I plight thee my troth.”
Some people with special personalities like to pronounce the words, “I do, I do” in the most remote and exotic places. For example, some people decide to get married exactly on the North Pole in the midst of polar bears and Eskimos. Others prefer to tie the knot while descending on a parachute, or on the bottom of the ocean, or in the heights of Mount Everest, or in the middle of the Sahara Desert, or inside a salt cathedral underground, or an ice chapel in Iceland. Yep, marriage makes people take the most odd decisions. After all it’s one of the most important decisions of your life.
During a short visit to the highlands of the Province of Chiriqui, I happened into a gorgeous glass house. It’s used for several purposes, among them for marriages and matrimonial festivities. I had never seen a crystal house before, and it baffled my imagination getting married in the middle of a coffee plantation flanked by high mist forests inside a glass house. The place is Hotel Finca Lérida in Alto Boquete, one of the most beautiful sites in the Isthmus of Panama.
Pictures of course describe better than words, so I inserted several photographs of this gorgeous crystal house in the middle of a coffee plantation in Alto Boquete. Disneyland pales in comparison.
Is this the enchanted place where you want to get married? No problem, hop into a plane, come on down to Panama, and head for the mountains of Alto Boquete where love and magic reigns. Good Day and enjoy your marriage.
