Come on in!

Welcome to the Bates Family Blog.

For my first post I felt it was very appropriate to thank everyone who supported us at our wedding. David and I know so many people that traveled long distances to be there. So many people contributed to make it the dream wedding we have always wanted. We want to thank our families who worked long hours to make this wedding happen. I want to personally thank my mom, Sandy Carden for the countless hours she put into creating my vision. Thank you to all who contributed financially. Thank to all that sent cards and gifts. We are very blessed.

A special thanks goes out to:
