We’re waiting in the Hotel Contessa lobby for some college friends after Jana and Jeff’s fantastic wedding. The hotel is decorated for Christmas, with one enormous tree and the whole river walk out the window. Today was a rainy, grey, bluster sort of day. The perfect for newlyweds to flee the country for Italy (which is where Jana and Jeff were off to for their honeymoon).

Jana and Beth
I’ve known Jana since undergrad. She was one of the first people I met at Schreiner, along with Beth, who suffered through Old Testament with me. It was such a pleasure to be at her wedding, celebrating with her and Jeff. The wedding, in a little church on the river walk, and the elegant reception following at the hotel was perfect. Jana was absolutely gorgeous in her dress, and Jeff looked dashing. She even got him to dance to the string quartet during the reception. All in all, the perfect wedding.
