Chris and Pam Tie the Knot!

August 24, 2010

As the sun set over the Exuma Sound on Friday, August 20th, family and friends gathered on Sunset Beach at Cape Eleuthera to witness Chris and Pam Maxey exchange vows.  After almost nine years of separation, Chris and Pam decided it was time to reunite with a wedding ceremony on Eleuthera.  Almost 100 guests, plus faculty and staff of The Island School, Cape Eleuthera Institute, and Deep Creek Middle School joined the Maxey family in celebration of their marriage.

At the altar Chris and Pam were joined by their four children: Brittany, 21; Brocq, 19; Tyler, 15; and Tegan, 14.  John Norris Carey, longtime friend of Chris and Pam and construction manager of all Island School buildings, presided over the ceremony.  Pam wore a dress by well-known designer Pamella Roland, mother of Island School alumna Sydney Devos (F06).

After the ceremony guests enjoyed perfect Bahamian weather while feasting on food catered by The Beach House, out of Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera, and danced to the rake ‘n scrape tunes of South Eleuthera’s band, the Rum Runners.  It was the perfect evening to celebrate the reunion of The Island School’s founding couple.  Congratulations to the Maxeys!

    Pam and Chris,

    Having been with both of you on separate occassions I often reflected that that such wonderful people might someday find their way back to each other.
    Margi and I and Mimi (Mika) couldn’t be happier for you and your family.

    Warm Regards,
    Mike Picotte

    JUST received the e-mail and I’m all welled up! Blurry eyes – having a little trouble typing…. Congratulations to you and your family. I write on behalf of the entire Wellin clan: we couldn’t be more pleased. My parents celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on August 20th, so we’ll think of you annually on that special date. Well done you two! Big hugs from Maine,

    Pam & Peter (Nate IS ’06, Gus IS ’08)

    Congratulations, Pam & Chris! We are SO happy for you, your family, and friends!

    My daughter and I attended the Teachers’ Conference a few summers ago at the Island School and we were totally blown away by your hospitality, as you hosted the end-of-the-week bash at your place. We took a bit of the Island School back with us to our schools in the states and we have the most fabulous memories of our time there!

    Thanks for all you do! Cape Eleuthera is better because of the two of you! I’m sure this was a very special experience for your four children, too!

    What a gorgeous bride, and beautiful couple! Couldn’t be a more fantastic setting or happy occasion to celebrate. I’m delighted to hear this wonderful news! (to be honest, since we are new friends and Island School parents, I didn’t realize that you weren’t together. silly me)

    However, I am so pleased to see that happiness reigns and all is well in the world! It appears you simply DO belong together. Congratulations to Pam and Chris, and to the entire Maxey family! Cheers!

    Dear Pam and Chris,

    Congratulations on your wonderful day and the full reunion of your family! It looks like it was a magical Eleuthera day which is only fitting. We are raising a glass of nice wine to you from across the pond in Belgium, and hope to tempt you to come over to our side of the ocean so that we can drink some together with you soon.

    Wishing you many more years of happiness together and hope to see you soon.
