Another personal touch that was added to the wedding was the wedding cake which was made by the grooms aunt.  The “sweets” table also consisted of family cookie recipes from both sides.  While Hilton Head Entertainment provided the music, Katy and Jeff provided the flip flops so guests could “Save their souls and DANCE!” Guests came from out of town so it was important for Katy and Jeff to show off the south while everyone partied and enjoyed the weekend!
