Catered food from Blue Mesa Grill , homemade guacamole by the Groom's parents,homemade cheesecake and Italian Creme Cake by the Groom's paternal grandmother and homemade salsa by the Groom's maternal grandparents.)
Now that was a great combo if my tummy has a vote!!

Brian and Aubrey make a fine pair of lovebirds, don't you think?
