Sara Long & Dan Anderson

Wedding Party

After a lot of debate, Sara and Dan finally narrowed down the number of people in the wedding party. There are so many people that have played a big part in their lives over the years that this was a very hard task. They ended up settling with 6 on each side, as well as 2 flower girls and 2 ring bearers.

Sara also had a problem picking a "Maid of Honor", so thus far all girls are her "Maids" of Honor. :)
