For Brenda and Paul, it was important that their wedding reflect not only their personal history, but their families' as well. Thanks to Paul's father's long service in the Coast Guard (he retired a three-star admiral), Brenda and Paul were granted the privilege of exchanging vows in the Coast Guard Chapel in New London, Connecticut. "The ceremony site was much more meaningful because Paul's father was so dedicated to the Coast Guard," Brenda says. The touching ceremony was followed by a reception at the stately Eolia Mansion in Harkness Memorial State Park, where Paul often played as a child.
