217--Virginia: Kristi & Brian's Wedding Ceremony
@ Site News     Jun 04 2004 - 14:16 PST
cherie writes: Kristi and Brian may have meet at "the Pour House", but they got married in a Virginina Southern mansion. Someone once said, that a spouse is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you forget the words.

Kristi's Bridesmaids included: Sheila (Matron of Honor), Carter (Maid of Honor), Jenn, Shelby, Crystal and Renee.

Brian's Groomsmen included: T.J. (Best Man), Mike, Sean, R.J., & John.

Flower Girl: Hanna
Ring Bearer: Connor

Parents of the Bride: Claudia and Steve
Parents of the Groom: Linda and Terry

I had the honor of officiating the ceremony. Just call me Rev. Cherie

Bear witness as Kristi and Brian become husband and wife, share their first kiss as a married couple, dance their first dance, drink their first sips of champagne, cut their wedding cake, toss the garter and the bouquet, and drive off in a shimmer of sparkles.
