December 15th, 2018. We gathered outside St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum to be witness of the lifelong covenant of my son Alejandro Lepervanche with Elizabeth Voelkel. I am a Florida Notary who happens to be the father of the groom and I had the honor and responsibility to marry them. Here are the highlights of the lessons we shared during their beautiful outdoors ceremony.

St. Augustine Lighthouse

Lighthouses are built by engineers to provide guidance to sailors. They are built on rocks that provide a solid foundation to withstand winds and waves. Comparing with lighthouses, our foundations are our beliefs, values, priorities, families, and friends.

Marriages are built on solid foundations to withstand the storms of life. Find your lighthouses, find the light from God, climb the stairs, and enjoy the view from the top. Start looking for the next one… together. Enjoy your similarities, minimize your differences, and respect your individualities.

Each new lighthouse you find will remind you of the vows you have made here. God Bless You.

“By virtue of the authority vested in me under the laws of the State of Florida, I now pronounce you husband and wife.” – Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia. 


The sun always shines after the storms. Captains are tested during the storms, scouts are tested during emergencies, and engineers and leaders are tested all the time. #lepervanchevoelkel #ecaptains2018 #ecaptains_staugustine #ecaptains_lighthouses #ecaptains_sunbehind

Sea Camp Beach – Cumberland Island.

One of only six locations in the United States where feral horses can be found, the roughly 200 wild horses on Cumberland Island, Georgia have been there since the 1700s. These equines make up much of the unique charm of this island as they wander unmolested throughout the island delighting visitors.

Survival of mankind is always based on the social relationships and responsibilities without which we can’t imagine the existence of better life. For a healthy and good society there must be collaboration between the citizens. In the light of these principles Rovers’ Club in GC University has been working to “Serve the humanity without any discrimination” since 1908 with the name of Rovers’ Crew now named as Rovers’ Club. Club provides full opportunities to the students of the University regarding co-curricular activities, scouting and also to refresh their selves by organizing recreational trips.
