Flashback Friday the Wedding of Nikki and Peter

When I first met Nikki and Peter, I was taken by their team-work attitude.  They had an amazing way of planning their event together, and Peter’s admiration and love for Nikki was beyond evident.  He complimented her, her hard work, and her ability to bring in family from over-seas.
