Exciting Times Ahead

There were candles and rose petals....

...a table for two on the beach....

...chocolate covered strawberries and champagne...

and photographers hidden behind rocks and trees....

The answer to the question was YES, the champagne cork popped and Ashley and Owen can't stop smiling. Our youngest is getting married - in 4 or 5 months! Yikes! Lots of planning to do. We'll know the date when we get the venue!

We're all so very happy. Congratulations Ashley and Owen!
