Groom has only one date to remember
June 8 was my 30th birthday. Some people looked unsure when we told them the wedding date was the same as my birthday, but we thought it would be fun. Christian surprised me by having our guests sing "Happy Birthday."
I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate!
