Bridal Show 2015

Whew!  It's over!

And what a smashing success it was.  We had a wonderful time on Saturday!  The dresses were lovely, the stories were touching, and the food was out of this world.

Here are just a few photos from the event.  Check out our Facebook page for a TON more.  Thank you to volunteer Dick Conde for really capturing the feeling of the show for us!
