Benefits of a Military Wife

I just booked a "quickie wedding" for a young couple wanting to get married as soon as possible. In my business, no matter how well you know or counsel the couple, they are either going to make it or break it. The odds of this couple are just as good as anyone else's really. Just because the bride is 19 and the groom's name is John E. Walker (the popular Scotsch whiskey) is no means to judge.

John is going into the marines and the bride wants to be sure she gets all the benefits of being a military wife. At 19, who can blame her.

Hidden Gem : Glen Echo Country Club

Glen Echo Country Club
3401 Lucas and Hunt Road
Normandy  MO  63121
(314) 383-1500

One word describes this location for an event - CINDERELLA - as they provide elegance, privacy and unparalleled attention to detail.  As I arrive at the front gate to this country club, I meander through the long driveway as it approaches the country club that looks like a castle or large mansion.  I can imagine a horse and carriage taking the couple up to the grand ball that is to occur inside.

The club was founded in 1901 and is the oldest 18-hole golf course west of the Mississippi River.  From the beautiful, mature trees to the architecturally stunning clubhouse, this is a true gem in North County.  This location was also part of the Olympic Games back in 1904 - so much history !!
