It was a morning that started out gloomy but an afternoon that turned out to be gorgeous. What a day for this beautiful wedding at Saint Patrick’s Church in Tacoma. It was my first wedding since my baby was born, and it felt so good to be back (even though it was the longest time I’d ever spent away from him and I sure missed him!). Weddings are funny things. You spend the day intimately close with perfect strangers on the happiest day of their lives, and throughout the day, you begin to learn their story, meet their family, and by the end of the night, you wish you were friends. That’s how I felt about Mary and Cody and their wonderful friends and family.
