Celebrating decades-long marriages

When I’m not coordinating weddings, I like to volunteer at my mom’s assisted living facility. On Sunday, my mom and I hosted a wedding party for ladies from Johnson City, Bristol, Kingsport and Erwin. The residents brought photos of their loved ones and told their wedding/marriage/love stories. It was so much fun. Some brides have never worn a veil as they got married by a justice of the peace. ~~~ Side note: I also like to watching baking shows on TV. I finally put all my “TV knowledge” to work as I made a three-tier wedding cake for this event. It was red velvet, black walnut and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Super yummy but not kind to the hips! (Click on a photo to see the complete gallery.)
