Cory and I would like to take time to express our deepest thanks to the people that made our Sept. 22 wedding such a beautiful and special event.

Special thanks to Bryon Moore and Dan Fagen of the Pizza Place; Maggie Whitaker from Down to Earth Flowers and Gifts; Angie Riley and Jolene Kelly at the lovely Belle Vita salon; Lori Morrison and Power Kickboxing; Chris Garcia and Frankie’s Pizza; Colleen Kelly and Bessie Whitaker for the fantastic pictures; Jon and Ellen Snyder, Dale and Darleen Ray and Francis and Susan Kelly for being “wedding coordinators extraordinaire”; and our parents, Pat and Jeannette Busby and Gary Trunkey.

Each one of you contributed to a day full of love and joy. You are very special to us and we love you all.

Thanks to everyone,

Cory and Jennifer Busby
