As promised, here is a follow-up to previous posts (Wedding a Huge Success and John and Cara), here is the newly wedded couple, John and Cara Erickson.
As you can see, the bride and groom dressed in Middle Eastern attire. The wedding was held at The Holly Street Bar & Grille, who specialize in “specialty” foods and entertainment. The meal was Middle Eastern and hughly delicious. I especially liked the parsley salad (I forget the real name for it).
It was a hot afternoon (I’m guessing about 98Â°F), but that didn’t wilt anyone’s spirit. The groom and best man wore knee lenght black jackets trimmed with a decorative border. The bride’s dress was breathtaking. It was custom made with all of those gold appliques.
And of course the real test of the success of a wedding is a yes answer to the following question: Did the bride and groom get married? Everything else is icing on the cake and this cake was well iced. I’m hoping that the parents of the groom have recovered as they spent lots of time and love in preparing for and bringing off the wedding.
Congratulations to Cara and John. May your marriage be blessed.
