What a gorgeous picture!

What a lovely photo!

Great to get to know you and your love story better.

Great photo. I'm under the impression that there is a difference between east coast and west coast wedding receptions. My brother was married in Utah (not west coast, but apparently close enough to qualify), where it is tradition to have hors d'ourves, finger sanwiches, and snacks. Of course, our east coast (NY) family thought that was the weirdest thing on earth, since all our cousins had big, sit-down meals and an open bar! :-) Naturally, all the east coast faction went out to dinner after the reception.

I love your answer for the greatest strength and greatest challenge. I find that very relevant in this house as well.
