Suddenly they swung. Her ballgown shifted and together they swayed. With a jump and a twist they crossed the dance floor back and forth.

Hot sun beat down on the concrete pavers. Water trickled in the background while soft music played. He stood with a smile on his face. The Iowa heat far from his mind. He gazed up the stone amphitheater—waiting. The heavy wooden doors opened. Everybody looked. Kyle’s second love descended the stairs. His two tiny hand […]

Kristen put together the dream team when it came to wedding vendors. Abby […]
