What a great day to get married, right?  At least, that's what we're telling one-time Appeal film writer Katie Doze, who's getting hitched at City Hall this afternoon.

So I'm headed out to 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, for the big event.  Fun!

Have a great weekend, everyone, and see you Monday.
