It’s been a long time coming, but they finally did it…..Joanne and Archie got married!
I say “finally” because it probably seemed like forever for these two. Their original wedding date was in September last year, but that had to be moved back due to an unexpected deployment (Archie is in the U.S. Navy). Fortunately, they were able to secure a date for this year at the same venue and keep the same vendors, including yours truly. Being a former Navy man myself, I know a thing or two about unexpected deployments.
While Archie was out sailing the Seven Seas, Joanne held everything down and put together one of the most fun weddings I’ve been involved with. Having known these guys for nearly two years, it was such a joy to finally see them come together.
I’m sure the long wait only served to make it that much better…
