One of the things we love most at Shane Co. is our employees. On June 16, one special employee renewed her vows with her husband of 25 years, and Shane Co. had a very special place in that ceremony.
Martha LaCroix is our Chief Human Resources Officer, and she also happens to be my mom. In my family, there are not many places that hold more memories than Disney World, so my parents chose to take a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth for their anniversary. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and performed the small vow renewal ceremony on a veranda overlooking a man-made savannah where giraffes, okapi and ostriches roamed. Not only did I get to be at my parents’ vow renewal, but I got to officiate their ceremony. I used their original wedding vows and rewrote the rest of the ceremony to reflect how much love they have shared for the past 25 years.
What made this even more special was the amazing Shane Co. ring my father gave my mother. It’s a beautiful yellow gold ring with rubies and diamonds, and it is the perfect complement to my mother’s wedding set. My father wanted to make sure the ring was perfect, and the team at Shane Co. helped him with this endeavor. From the sales associates to the Executive Vice President of Store Operations, everyone put their best foot forward and helped make this anniversary gift incredible.
Being able to share such a special moment with my amazing parents, my siblings and my best friend was incredible. My parents are such a perfect example of love at first sight!
