REAL WEDDING: Lyndsey & Ian McPherson

Married May 7, 2016

Reflections from the Bride:  “Before our exit, I changed into my mother’s wedding dress.  Since my parents have been married for 31 years, that was quite special.  Also, we are avid quail hunters, so our caterer used quail our family hunted in quail stuffed mushrooms.”
