We have seen so many corners of this great state and it still continues to surprise us. The hilly and curvy drive into our meeting spot with Molly and Jason was an enjoyable experience. We arrived early to our rendezvous point to see what all is around. Everywhere we looked there was beauty. From the moment we pulled into the large empty parking lot we were thrilled.

Their families still sitting in the herb garden where they had just witness two young loving people say “I do” to each other. This realization of being husband and wife, partners for life, it brings smiles and joy to these beautiful souls.
