Weddings 11-10-2016 Khrystina and Cole’s Wedding at Crawford’s Barn

I made my fair share of boneheaded choices as a young boy. My dad looked on at these choices and commented on them without coming on too strong. Jokingly, he often asked the question: “What, were you born in a barn?” Well, Khrystina and Cole, may not have been born in a barn. But they …
