My GPS told me that I was in uncharted roads as I pulled up on the quaint Eagle Springs Campground in Pine Grove. Derek told me that it is a place for mentally challenged kids to spend some time over the summer and is owned by relatives of Laura. He and many other helpers had spent several months of weekends coming to the campground to work on areas to prepare for the big day. Luckily the rain held out since Derek told me we were having the ceremony outside if we had to wait till the rain stopped. (which it never did) There was a perfect field on the property for photos complete with an antique tractor. Derek and Laura’s son served as the ring bearer proudly wearing his bright yellow Chuck Taylor’s. Later at the reception, he showed up all the adults with the best “worm” I have ever seen!
Thanks so much to Char for letting me help with this great celebration!
