Published 12:00pm Friday, October 26, 2012

Kristen Sornsin and Joshua Osborne were married last Saturday at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church at 3:30 p.m.

Their whimsical woodland reception followed at The Stables, which they arrived at in a horse drawn carriage.

The Stables’ rustic charm was enhanced with vines and additional flower adorned wooden arbors.

One flower splashed tree limb was suspended from the ceiling in the center of the room that was breathtaking.

Live turtle doves were on display at the entrance.

Guests left their thumb prints on a commemorative tree painting that is to hang in the newlyweds’ home.

The bride’s white vintage cowboy boots were the perfect touch to her dazzling gown.

SpringHouse catered the down home southern cuisine (the chicken and dumplings were delish). Guests walked away with tiny jars of honey.

Tune into At Home with Kenny DeanJessica Sanford and I co-hosted Monday night and talked fashion and pop culture nonsense.

Obviously he has good taste in guest hosts!

The show airs Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 6–7 p.m. and Tuesdays at noon.

The Russell Medical Center Foundation and The Women’s Center at RMC held their annual breast cancer luncheon midday on Tuesday at the Betty Carol Graham Technology Center.

I hope you read our Alison James’ wonderful account of the luncheon.

Football wife and breast cancer survivor Barbara Dooley was the keynote speaker and she kept the 440 strong audience in stitches as she rolled through her Top 10 Best Things about Breast Cancer.

She pointed out that if money can solve your problem, it is not really a problem at all – cancer is a problem.

Different businesses and groups decorated and designed bras that were to be voted on.

They were amazing – there was a hilarious political themed bra, a sassy sequined black bra by Little Black Dress, and a shiny copper penny encrusted bra.

One of my favorites was Dr. Doug Roberts’ barbed wire bra he designed for my mother’s sorority group to decorate. He is so talented!

Tallapoosa County Probate Judge candidate Charles Gillenwaters hosted a campaign fundraiser Tuesday evening at the Lunch Bunch.

Over 50 guests gathered to make merry and enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

The wondrously mild fall weather kept the majority of guests on the back porch.

I hope everyone is embracing this glorious fall weather.

Last Sunday, my husband John, Jessica, Mona and I hiked up to the Smith Mountain Fire Tower in Dadeville. If you have not done this yet, I encourage you to do so.

The views are amazing and the hike is both fairly easy and dog friendly.

It would be a perfect spot for a Christmas photo or even an engagement opportunity!
