Team Hawk 25th Anniversary

Ken & Denise pulled out all the stops to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their union and the development of Team Hawk that followed.

The evening began with a lovely ceremony on the lower veranda of Villa Montez. Flanked on each side by their children and attendants from their wedding, they entered from opposite sides and joined everyone on the stage. Two wedding attendants officiated a ceremony centered around kindness. As a nod to their (then-Catholic) ceremony from 25 years ago, they asked guests to offer a sign of peace to one another. Beginning with the youngest, each of their children offered a short original reading to celebrate the occasion. Finally Denise and Ken offered new vows to one another surrounded by the love of their family and friends.

The Team Hawk motto is “Love Wins”. The theme of this celebration was “Kindness (rocks)!” Love and happiness filled the whole event.

The painting behind them was created by Team Hawk. There are 25 rings in the heart. Each of their children signed the ring for the year they were born. This wonderful piece of art was designed to hang in their home.

After the ceremony, guests were invited inside for a lovely dinner. Just after, the kids presented Ken & Denise with a video complete with a “team poster” image and interviews with family and friends. At the end of the video, the kids presented Ken and Denise with their own “Team Hawk 25″ jerseys. Finally, the whole group (and some crashers, too!) danced the night away on the Villa Montez middle terrace.
