A Fairy Tale

Bridesmaids “princesses” at the Hillis/Richards wedding

Fairy tales really can come true, at least according to Deborah Richards. She says, “Cinderella found her prince,” and we were invited to celebrate her marriage to John M. Hillis at the Montecito Club. Only princes and princesses needed to RSVP. We were to wear ball gowns and tiaras, princely attire for the guys, and be ready to dance, storybook style.

The couple took over the entire club with a combo of Tom Snow, Maitland Ward, and Suzie Gee playing during a cocktail hour for 120 guests. Then into the dining room for a stately dinner and a choice of wine. And of course, dancing the night away with DJ Darla Bea. Deb and John are at home, not in a castle, but in a polo field condo with a horse nearby. Love is in the air!
