Iberostar Hosts two Philadelphia Eagles Legends

Are you ready for some football?

I know it’s cliché, but I am! I love the enthusiasm each new season brings and all of the predictions for the year. Everyone starts the seasons with a blank slate and builds from there. My prediction for the Philadelphia Eagles is 13 wins! It’s in writing now, so no changing it!

Apple Vacations is lucky to have many friendships throughout the NFL, including Eagles pro–bowl wide receivers, Mike Quick (#82) & Harold Carmichael (#17). They are two local legends in Philadelphia and are both still very active in the Philadelphia sports community. Harold is with the team and Mike Quick can be heard on CBS radio in Philadelphia on Sportsradio 94 WIP.

In the off season, we were able to host them at Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus in the Domninican Republic. They had a fabulous time and shared all of these great photo’s with us to show just how great their vacation was.

The only thing to keep in mind is that destination weddings are less “traditional”, so your dress can be too!

Here are a few guidelines to consider before saying “yes” to the dress:
