True love shines through during this beautiful blessing between Chad and Nattida as they say their wedding vows in front of their friends and family at the beautiful Pelican Hill Resort.  I met the couple several years before when we planned the wedding for Nattida's brother.  She and Chad sat next to me at the Rehearsal dinner. I was thrilled to receive the call to plan their wedding.  One of my favorite color combinations, canary yellow and grey added a sophisticated touch to our summer wedding.  Their cute little doggie was the ring bearer.  I love the argyle socks that the groom gave as a signature gift to his groomsmen because they made great pictures.  The glass cake table was also a huge hit.
