  Celebrating 20 years of marriage, Jacky & Bobbie Webb Harris renewed their vows today with their two children, Kristen and Lane and numerous other relatives and fiends in attendance.  A reception followed with great food and fellowship.

One unexpected incident followed the conclusion of the ceremony…the couple’s daughter, Kristen, received a proposal of marriage from her boyfriend!  Congratulations Kristen and Devin…because, she said YES!
