Whew… Just catching my breath! Did you catch any of my updates this weekend? Everything worked out very well! The weather could not have been more perfect, considering the gamble of having an outside wedding in Memphis during the month of June.
Celebrations began Wednesday night and continue now in Hawaii where the happy, sweet, & beautiful couple are honeymooning!
