Pamela and John met in a bait and tackle/restaurant and hit it off immediately.  Pamela modeled with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency in New York until her mid-twenties traveling the world.  She graduated college with a Master’s Degree within three years.  John, an attorney in Richmond, loves the outdoors.  He fishes and hunts but his true love is Pamela.  Being the granddaughter of a peanut farmer, Pamela’s mother, Bonnie, arranged for thousands of peanuts to be used as favors for the wedding with custom stamped bags for the guest to carry out their favors.  The families shared their pie recipes and had them served to guests instead of wedding cake along with the copy of the recipes.  Duck decoys were used in the buffet lines and the groom provided all of the meat for the gaming station.  The brides taste was showcased in crystal chandeliers and a beautiful lounge for guests to enjoy a cocktail.  The 400 guests danced the night away with their band who kept the party going.
