Our Wedding Announcement...

So we were a little slow at getting our wedding announcement into the papers...but it finally made it! Hey, they say you have up to a year right? We still had 4 months to go! For those that don't get the Bryan County News, here's what it looked like (it was in this past Saturdays paper)...Also, it will be in the Savannah Morning News this Sunday, but it is a shortened, condensed version compared to the Bryan Co. News...they charge an arm and a leg for every word! :-) We've sent it to Houston Home Journal...but not sure of when they will publish it.
