In the season of weddings, there are the extras that actually make the whole event a memory to cherish. One thing that I would tell brides today...get professional photographs of each event. This was not in our budget, and I'm sad that our pictures are few and not like we have today. I enjoy them anyway! And, back to the special extras that made the day wonderful. There were three hundred or so of the most amazing family & friends who celebrated with us. Here are the ones who rode the ride! Thank you!
