But I don’t feel ready to do that yet. I think I’ll save it for the […]

When I first met Bethany and Ed, I was instructed to “look for the short brunette gal and the tall bald guy with tattooed legs.” They were easy to spot and after greeting them, right away I could sense how terrific these two were. They spoke of their relationship with joy, and of their wedding […]
