What the Beck???

Stopka Wedding

     The Stopka family has played a huge part in my life. I love all of them, as if I were a part of their family. I always felt welcome in their homes, and I feel so blessed to know each and every one of them. Thanks to Mom, Nancy Stopka, I entered college in Florida. She also helped me find a job that I loved after I moved there. She has been a strong influence in my life, and I was thrilled to see her at this wedding. 
     Kathy, has been my best friend, since I was seven years old. I have always admired her and love her husband and kids, too.
This was a very special day for me. A big thank you to Christina, Shirley, and Tom for inviting me to this wedding. 
      Enjoy the photos of the day.

Here comes the bride...and Dad
Chrissy and Tom Stopka

Her dress was beautiful

The wedding was held on a path at St. James
 Farm between white field fences.
What a beautiful day and location for a wedding.
