It’s hard to believe that almost 3 months ago, Frank and I got married on the Carnival Miracle Cruise Ship in the Port of Long Beach! I remember searching high and low for information about cruise weddings on blogs and wedding sites and really didn’t find all that much that was current. I hope that […]...
