Wedding Day & The Giant Dipper, 1995

On June 10, 1995 my wife Cheryl and I were married on the beach just below the Dream Inn. It was a beautiful clear Santa Cruz summer morning and we had 120 of our friends and family celebrating with us. At the conclusion of the ceremony we had the usual cake & a toast for luck, but a trip to Santa Cruz is never complete without a stroll down the Boardwalk. My new bride and I, wedding dress, tuxedo and all, together with a large group of our family and friends made the walk to the Boardwalk and proceeded to ride the Giant Dipper!

We managed to have enough people in our party to take one whole roller coaster train. My wife and I rode in the front car and had the time of our life .. just like life, there are ups and downs .. We followed that with a ride on the ferris wheel and topped it off with a delicious Hodgie Corn Dog (still my favorite) and then continued our adventure with a trip to San Francisco and on to Hawaii spending a wonderful week at the Turtle Bay Hilton in Oahu.

Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk has been and still remains one of our favorite places to go.

Congratulations on your 100 years of providing family fun and memories.

Steve & Cheryl
