This is not my first time around. I'm probably the oldest bride on this site (just turned 58). My fiancé and I will be getting married on September 24, 2017 at the Deer Creek Golf Club. It's a small wedding with only 31 in attendance. After 6 years of getting to know each other and each going through some real financial and health difficulties, we've decided that we are stronger together than we are as individuals.

Happily married 🎉
