Miss Brandi Nelson
Mr. Curtis Harbaugh
we married at the Courtland Mansions in
Brandi is my grandson's oldest step child
and therefore my great grand child!
They were married in the courtyard of the mansion
Mother Nature provided us with a beautiful
sunset that gave a pink glow to everything.

I have purposely saved this picture till last.
It is a very special picture.
The bride and groom are exchanging two colors
of sand so that they can never be parted.
This was the most beautiful wedding I have
ever been to. Mother nature provided us with
the beautiful pink glow that lit up the
courtyard. The girls were all beautiful and the
groomsman all young and handsome.
The dresses were absolutely lovely.
No candles were used in the ceremony.
They were used only to light up the aisles.
All of this beauty
the bride was the only one that could not
see it. She is blind.
Needless to say I am very proud of
this young couple and of their mother and
I have so much to be thankful for and I realize what a lucky person I am. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and I thank God each day for them. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and count your blessings.
