First and foremost, I want to say "Congratulations!!" to Anna & Brian. They are a very cute couple who met on a educational trip to Paris. Isn't that romantic, to be able to tell your kids you met and fell in love in Paris. I met Anna and her family when she was about 9 or 10. She and her sister used to babysit for my 3 children. Anyone who knows me, knows I didn't leave my children with too many people. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow up and mature into a beautiful woman. She has proven and given me hope that it is possible to raise sweet, moral, clear thinking, positive kids into adults. Brian, I have recently met and he seems like a great guy. His family seems very close which I find to be very sweet.
Anna & Brian planned a beautiful wedding. It was held at the University Club in Phoenix. This venue is quaint, cozy, historic and cool. Because of the size of the venue and guest list, we were constantly on the move. This was nice because we had many opportunities to meet people and see many different areas. The ceremony was outside, cocktail hour was inside, introducing the bridal party was outside, dinner was inside, cake, toasts and dancing was outside.
Anna & Brian - you threw your first party as man and wife and you did a great job. There was a lot of your personality and family values in your celebration and I loved it. Enjoy being married, good luck to you with your future schooling and life together. I hope you will add me to your Christmas card list.
