Dan and Christine met in high school, but 30 years and a lifetime later, the couple stood on the beaches of Cape May to finally tie the knot.  

Each came into this union with their own families. Dan has two teenage daughters, and Christine has a son, Frank, currently serving in the U.S. Air Force. Even though they came together later in life, the blended family gets along exceptionally; all of them were able to celebrate Dan and Christine’s wedding with joy and optimism for this new chapter of life.

Choosing Cape May was an easy decision; both Dan and Christine spent summers there since they were toddlers. They picked Peter Shield Inn – a historic Victorian mansion on the Cape May waterfront – as their venue. Christine Waltz, one of the Inn’s wedding planners, took care of every detail.

Christine’s son walked her down the beach for their ceremony; he donned his navy blue Air Force “blues” for the occasion. Frank worked hard to get military leave and was elated at the chance to walk his mother down the aisle. His military background and service to the country is a source of pride for everybody in the new family.  

The guests loved the venue, food, and accommodations; several guests said it was the best food they have eaten at a wedding. The Peter Shield’s Inn provided an exceptional, detail-oriented experience. The couple can’t stop gushing about how accommodating the Inn was for them. And the green and white baby’s breath on their flower arch, provided by Cape Winds Florist, was stunning against Cape May’s white sand.  

Dan and Christine’s love story is a testament to the power of love and perseverance. They reconnected after almost three decades, blended their families successfully, and came together in beautiful union on the white, sandy beaches of Cape May.

 It was a day filled with love, laughter, and memories that will last a lifetime.
