Whimsical Real Wedding: Mary Ellen & Forrest

Mary Ellen Delph, 32, and Forrest Michael Henderson, 36, both thought they were ready to give up online dating. Then they met each other, and it turned out they were right – because they’ve been a couple ever since. After Forrest popped the question during a vacation in Sedona, Arizona, the couple celebrated their wedding with 100 of their friends and family at Rancho Valencia.
