Vow Renewals for Valentine’s Day

As a special Valentine’s Day event, eleven couples from a Bend retirement community renewed their vows. Residents of the Touchmark at Mount Bachelor Village gathered to celebrate the love of the couples who were married between 11  to over 60 years and were celebrating over 500 years of marital bliss total.

Central Oregon Daily spoke with one couple just before the ceremony.

Love Stories: Shantae & Simeon

This couple describes their relationship as pure magic. From the moment he heard her sing for the first time they had a connection. But it wasn’t until years later, when they met at auditions for a musical at the Tower Theatre, that their love began to blossom. Now, they are embarking on the next chapter of their Happily Ever After.

People from all over Central Oregon shared their love stories with Central Oregon Daily for a chance to win diamond jewelry from Saxon’s Fine Jewelers, a two-night romance package from Pronghorn Resort and roses from Donner Flower Shop.
