Wow!  What a great time everyone had last night! If you missed this event, you missed a really good time.

Thank you to our fabulous musicians – The Jason Nelson Band, John Wallace from 40 Miles to Vegas, Matt McCallie Orchestra, Landolfi Quartet, Sue with Harp Elegance, and The Sounds of Royal-T. Also thanks to our DJ & Master of Ceremony, Josh of River City DJ – he kept everyone informed and assisted with all the prizes and gifts. And, special thanks to all the vendors who participated with us. And thanks to Amy of Forest Park Golf Course – the appetizers and house drink – so delicious! Please consider this venue for your wedding – it’s a very special place.
