Describe the experience of your wedding. Where did you get married? Who was there? What was the most memorable part?: It had rained all week but the Saturday of the wedding was the most beautiful day ever: not a cloud in the sky, no mud on the ground, simply gorgeous. The ceremony was held at a country club just outside of Philly. Our two children were there and very much a part of the ceremony. The most memorable moment was giving [our] children necklaces inscribed with "One Family, One Love." It was truly a day filled with so much love and so many blessings.

Were there any local businesses that were helpful when you prepared your wedding?:
