Saturday, June 3, 2017, Frankie and Sonya were married in front yard of her brother's home. When I arrived, a half moon circle of white chairs were waiting to be filled on the front lawn. It wasn't long until a steady stream of family and friends started arriving to not only fill those chairs but also help with any task in order to make their day special. Everybody chipped in on what made for a beautiful wedding day!
Here are the pictures to help tell the story...
Sonya's mom bought her this robe to wear...
Her bouquet and shoes. Notice the six pence she glued into her shoes with the year she was born.

Sonya told me she wanted lots of pictures of their friends and family. I was happy to do so!

Life long friends!
Loved, LOVED her exit...A ribbon wand exit!!!
