Wedding at the hospital

Mr. and Mrs. Tufford
Joseph and Nicole in Camp Pendleton, 1997

Once upon a time, Joseph and Nicole fell in love. In 1997, when he was a young corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, Joseph attended the Marine Corps Ball at Camp Pendleton with Nicole by his side.

Today, the beautiful couple were married at the Sacramento VA Medical Center. 

Our incredible nurses decorated Joseph's room for the ceremony and even provided lunch for the newlyweds. 

Happy Valentine's Day and congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Tufford.  Whishing you all the best as you embark on this next chapter.  It's our honor to serve our heroes.
