Jim and Erma Budlove of San Diego, Calif., and St. Elmo celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary on Jan. 7, with dinner in the Fireside Room.
While they had a long waiting list of friends, they were able to invite only 88 because of the size of the room.
The dinner was a time for them to thank those attending for their love and friendship for the past 28 years, and to thank God that their paths in life had crossed.
Fresh flowers adorned the fireplace, mantel and other areas of the room. Rose bouquets adorned each linen-covered table
