It's a beautiful fall day here at Andalusia, much like it was two weeks ago when Stephanie Smith and Vince Vaughn were united in marriage on the front lawn in a beautiful ceremony at sunset. Though we're aware of at least a couple wedding receptions out here in the past, this is the first time in the Foundation's history that a couple has ever tied the knot on the premises. I have sometimes wondered why it's taken this long. You couldn't ask for a prettier place to have a wedding and, for a Flannery O'Connor fan like Stephanie Vaughn, why Andalusia is just about perfect. In honor of the setting, the bride chose dresses for her attendants in peacock hues of blue, purple, green, and copper. Each of the ladies had peacock feathers in her hair and the bride carried some of the colorful plumes in her bouquet. Even the wedding cake was decorated with peacocks. Now that's an O'Connor fan! You can see more photos from the wedding and reception by clicking this link. Congratulations Stephanie and thank you for sharing your wedding pictures. Thank you, too, for your kind words on Facebook. All of us here at Andalusia wish you and Vince many happy years together.
