As you can see, she still has a lot to do! She needs to kick it in high gear now. Adele had to fly back to Chicago, but she is due back sometime this week. Danielle has decided to make an appointment for her and Rod to do a couple of pre-marital sessions.
I am only including a couple of pictures to keep the element of surprise. Special thanks to Debbie of Black Doll Collecting for the dress Nicole is wearing in the video. We are not sure if the dress will make the wedding, but it at least made the video.
