Sam + Doug wedding {by kate}

I am a little behind on my blogging, but am happy to post this early spring wedding of Sam and Doug!  They are a fun and spontaneous couple who laugh a lot and have a tight knit group of family and friends that made the event really fun! Things of note about Doug:  1. He looks dapper in a tuxedo.  2. He is a questionable golf cart driver (I *might* have almost fallen out multiple times! LOL) 3. he works on a submarine!  4. He apparently is a Dr. Pepper addict.
