I was blessed to have a 31 year career in teaching, where it was my hope to have a bit of positive influence in the lives of my students. Now these students are fine young adults, many college graduates and pursuing life, love and ambition as we all do. Such as it is with Hana, a four year student athlete of mine who was now embarking on the biggest adventure of her life so far. I have to admit that there was a touch of sweet emotion in me, and even the Pooleman got a bit misty eyed during the proceedings.
The afternoon got started in the Bridal Preparation Room in the ranch house.
Technology is wonderful…when it works. In addition to putting on the boutonniere and getting the rings together, Mike had to write out his vows as laptop printer wasn’t working. He did this task with grace and good humor, showing a couple of the traits that endeared him to Hana.
The ranch provides a nice outdoor waiting area for the bride and her party.
All brides are beautiful. All grooms are extremely lucky. The expression on Mike’s face as Hana comes down the aisle says it all.

A trip outside the Ranch for some more photographs of the Newlyweds.
The Whispering Tree Ranch decor is a throwback to old country style and old fashion charm.
The sun goes down, the chandeliers light up and the evening’s fun begins.
Thank you Hana and Mike. It was an honor and a privilege to photograph all the laughter, love, tears of joy and fun of your wedding day. God bless you and watch over you in your long journey through life
