Never have I been witness to so much love and respect as the wedding day of Keisha and Steven Howe last month. You could see it, hear it, feel it. Everyone had a perma-smile going on and it wasn’t just because the church was air conditioned. …..which we were ALL so thankful for. I think…

She’s a perfect size— still…
