From the bride:

Wedding Dreams Can Come True At The Arling
Lydia Petersen, the owner of The Arling and my wedding planner, truly
exceeded my expectations. When we walked into The Arling, we were in
complete awe with the beauty, details, and how Lydia personalized
everything to us and our interests. We spent the night at The Arling
eating delicious food from Steamer's Seafood and dancing the night away
to The Juice Box Heroes -- their energy and interactiveness was simply
amazing! The night was perfect in every way and now we have beautiful
pictures thanks to Jen and Chris Creed to relive this magical day!

is the first day of the rest of your life with the one you love and it
goes by in a blink of an eye so cherish it!
