Kristen and Mike 10/11/08

Today was such a beautiful day for a wedding.  I feel like I say that a lot but it truly was perfect.  The sun was shining and it was so warm for mid October.  Kristen was a breathtaking bride.  Her gown, hair, make-up, and jewelery, everything was flawless.  Mike was quite stunning as well.  The ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Mary's Church downtown Lancaster.  The reception followed at the fabulous Casa di Fiori at Leola Village Inn and Suites.  Kelly Meints was on board again for this event and was fantastic as ever. Thanks so much Kelly for all your hard work!

On another note, this post is special to me, it signifies ONE YEAR of blogging!  Yay!  It also brings me back to where this blog started one year ago, where we did the first wedding ever held at Casa Di Fiori!  It was for Deb and Jay's wedding.  You can view the old post HERE , and also by clicking in my archives for Oct. 2007.  Thanks to all who follow my blog and continue to share your comments with me.
