My Big Fair Wedding Day

On June 30th, Mayesh participated in a fun event, My Big Fair Wedding Day, that took place at this year’s San Diego County Fair’s Flower and Garden Show.  Below are a few pictures that Trudy, from our Carlsbad Mayesh branch, sent over and I also included the press release for more details about the event.

I heard that this event went over really well and will be repeated next year!  I wonder if any other county fairs or flower & garden shows have done something like this before?  If so, we would love to hear about it!!
