Cruise Diary: Wedding at Sea

Nancy Moen and Chuck Velte will be exchanging vows on board Oosterdam’s March 5 cruise to Mexico. Nancy will be updating us on their wedding at sea throughout their voyage. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Who could predict such a happy ending to a love story? It took decades, but my childhood sweetheart and I are engaged after going our separate ways in the 1960s. It seems like I’ve loved this guy forever! Chuck Velte and I met as newborns in a hospital nursery after being delivered by the same doctor just four days apart. We were grade school and high school pals but lost track of each other in college. Now, after reconnecting by Facebook, we are starting a new life together. Chuck and I will exchange vows on the ms Oosterdam as she cruises the Mexican Riviera. We love the idea of taking our romance to sea. Apparently our friends do too, because 12 of them, from California, Nevada and Missouri, are joining us as we say “I do” on the evening of March 7. — Nancy Moen

Editor’s Note: The wedding vow exchange in these posts is not a legal wedding but is a lovely, personal ceremony. Weddings can be arranged with Holland America Line but legal ceremonies must be performed in ports of call or on Half Moon Cay.
