The love story of Andrea and Alex, started in California, where Alex corresponded with Andrea via email. It wasn’t much later that he was asking her to marry him, when he went half way across the country to propose! The families were terrific and their stay was particularly delightful for me because of Andrea and her Mom’s love of horses. The morning of the wedding, Andrea took a spin on my hunting steed Houston and her Mom joined in for photos on our Black Horse thoroughbred mascot named Dante. To horse lovers, there is no better way to start the day, even if it is your wedding day. Our bridal couple was absolutely gushing with happiness after the wedding. Alex and Andrea had an early flight the next morning, and awakened to Joyce’s fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls and coffee before departing to the Caribbean for their honeymoon.
