They're Hitched!

Sarah and Craig had a glorious day! The reception at The Feast at Roundhill was exceptional, we highly, highly recommend them. The whole weekend went off without a glitch, which if you know our family, is very unusual.

Cathy also made the centerpieces! The woman is multi-talented.

Ok there was one glitch but it was the end of the night so it really doesn't count. Cousin Lou getting funky on the dance floor, shared a bit too much of his wine.
