It's another beautiful week in the Rio Grande Valley ...

Congratulations to Eva & Arlyn Olson, who were recently married at St. John's in McAllen. Serving as maid-of-honor and flower girl were Eva's beautiful daughters, Evette Trigo and Ashlynn Trigo, while Arlyn's son, Joshua Olson, was best man. Lazo presenters were Rosy Pones and Frances Ibarra, with Ben Abbitt serving as usher. And...since Eva and Arlyn are such a musical couple, it was no surprise that the ceremony would feature fabulous musicians--among them was pianist Edelir Garza, a wonderful rendition of Kenny G's "Forever In Love" by Martin Benitez, and a lovely performance by Cecilio Rodriguez.

Also seen celebrating this special day were Pat Fletcher, Ann Greenfield, Mary & Lee Baucum, Karen & Jimmy Henderson, Trish Motheral, Lorena & Jorge Rojas, Imelda & Travis Wilson, Susan & JR DeLeon, Angie Rivera, Leonor Fletcher, MaryLou Jesness, Karen & Royce Countryman, Karen & David Peterson, Cindy & Doug Young, and Winnie & Gene Mitford, just to name a few!

Included among them were Sonia Guajardo-Lopez, Ruby Martinez, Blanca Cardenas, Steve Alhenius, Davis Rankin, Rep. Aaron Pena, Norman Winter, Rick Guerra, Joe Brown, Pepe Cabeza de Vaca, Lauro Solis, Michael Fallek, Patricia Villasenor, Kristine Dacallos, and many more!
