Sunflowers in Guánica, Puerto Rico

After several months of hard work, we always try to relax a little bit and do something to free our minds until we are called for duty and begin a new season of fabulous events. This time we invited two of our staff, Rebeca and Fernando, to the Municipality of Guánica to visit the fabulous Finca El Girasol.  We really enjoyed the day off, the Sunflowers were beautiful, our own piece of Tuscany on the Caribbean. We visited the south of Puerto Rico which is really impressive, the Municipalities of Yauco, Guánica, Ponce are worth a trip.  

Our final stop, La Barca Restaurant in the Municipality of Salinas is a great place to eat good food, drink some beers and enjoy the amazing sunset.

Here are some pictures of our trip.

Rebeca and Fernando at "The Rock of Guánica, also known as the Historic Rock, it's a rock discovered during the construction of Road #333 in Guánica. The rock has an engraving which was later determined that was done by engineers of the United States Army, and thought that it was been carved during the American invasion of Puerto Rico in 1898."

A New Era

Without regard to the state’s law, on Friday June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that same sex unions have a constitutional right to marry nationwide. 
A new ERA began.
The 5-4 opinion written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will stand as a landmark in civil rights law, culminating a struggle for same sex equality for marriage under the Constitution.
In the past, we have worked “mocked-up” same sex weddings who chose the Caribbean as the venue for their celebration. For us, at STEM Events, these were weddings of couples, regardless their sexual preference, who love each other and want to get married and exchange their vows in front of their loved ones.
We are very happy with these ruling, but mostly we are very happy for same sex couples who finally are treated equally. 
Now, these couples can actually say their vows for real, they can say “I DO” and not feel that they are “playing to get married”.
No more mock-up weddings, let us say YES to real same - sex weddings! Let us embrace the opportunity and show the beauty of this Island for their celebration as we have done with all of our couples in the past.
