The wedding and all of the surrounding events were the most elaborate that I have ever attended – and probably will ever attend in the future. I had a GREAT time the whole week-end. Congratulations to the Bride and Groom and I hope that your marriage is a blessed one. (Note: The pictures on this blog are not from the official wedding photographer.)
