Town Talk for Sept. 9. 2002
The ceremony was adorable, the bride was this other-worldly goddess that looked like she was the human incarnation of the soft focus lens and gallery lighting, and the groom was dashing and confident – in between crying jags.
The whole thing was fabulous.

Kim helps run the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate and runs a local church youth group, and Erik is the youth minister with Mount of the Holy Cross Lutheran Church.
Here’s a prayer that they live happily ever after, and that their happily every after lasts a long, long time.
