Have you ever met someone that is full of energy and radiates happiness? Christine is that type of girl. And on her wedding day, she was that type of bride. That morning, I walked in to a room full of girls that were so full of positive energy, that I knew that the day would be fun! It was indeed. I don’t think I ever saw Christine, or Damon for that matter, with out a huge smile.

Christine had her girls by her side and she got dressed.
Once the dress was on, she was literally bouncing with excitement.
