A 60th birthday celebration for Dusty Conner turned into a surprise wedding when he and Brad Ballington were married Saturday night, December 6, at the Coosaw Point River Club. Officiated by Beaufort City Councilman Mike McFee, the couple’s marriage was witnessed by about 75 of their closest friends and family members. Guests arrived from as far away as New York, and all were encouraged to dress in white for the themed birthday party. The Sweet Grass Angels performed, and a special birthday song was written and performed by friend Corrie Frohnapfel. Photos by Captured Moments Photography.
