The reception immediately followed at the Lee House bed-and-breakfast in historic downtown Pensacola where the Motown-style band 2nd Coming of Montgomery, Alabama provided music and Nancy’s Haute Affairs served great Southern favorites. Both the wedding cake and the groom’s cake were done to perfection by local favorite Betty Weber.
