In another room, John had a new experience… he filled out his own marriage license! As a marriage commissioner, he helps other couples fill out theirs on a daily basis!

When they came back to the reception, John swept her into a dip! What an entrance!

The chef at O’Malley’s had been cooking up a beautiful feast! It was some of the best cooking I had had experienced at O’Malley, and that is saying something.

So much love was shared with the toasts!

Samantha was swept and twirls around the dance floor by a very sweet family friend. It was magical!

And then the party really began. Even Grandma and grandpa got out on the floor.

At the end of the evening, Samantha and John took a walk outside in the crisp evening air to spend a few moments alone. What a beautiful beginning to a lifetime of love.
