A Mild November - Sharon and Jeffrey November 8, 2008

Sharon and Jeff were a lot of fun to work with. They selected a November Saturday and were blessed with mild weather. Here are some photos from this 2008 blast from the past!

The ceremony took place at St. Bernadette Catholic Church. Here are some photos of the outside and inside of the building.

Sharon, a sales representative of Mary Kay Cosmetics, did her own make-up. Here she is applying the finishing touches.

After their wedding ceremony, Sharon and Jeff stayed behind to finish up a few photos while their guests made their way to the hotel for the cocktail reception.

Inside the ballroom, everything was ready for them! Sharon had provided some colored candles and lots of fall color to warm up this November evening.

After being formally introduced, they were toasted and then a blessing was said before dinner. After that, the dancing and real fun began!

At the end of a fun evening, the guests joined hands to create an archway for the newlyweds to depart through!

Best wishes to Sharon and Jeff for a long and happy marriage!
