    In the Bahamas, we could only find a RC priest that will marry us inside of a church, but at least we won't have to renew our vows for our marriage to count in the eyes of the Church.
    Did your friend learn why she needed to renew her vows? Puerto Rico is a US territory with all the benefits of a state. Were both parties Catholic i wonder?

        Congrats and welcome to the forum!! Beaches Resorts are great for including kids... but I do not think they offer the catholic ceremony you require. But I am a little biased with Beaches... LOL

                Sorry, I left out the main point - they found a RC priest in Puerto Rico who agreed to do it outside - because the Catholic Church says you can't get married outside, their regular church won't recognize it unless they renew their vows inside of a church..
