Sandra Vitone has been visiting from Austin, Texas for about two weeks preparing the wedding of her daughter, Arathea Booth, to Shane Shankland. For over half year Sandra has been at work making invitations, preparing a large menu, and hand crafting decorations such as the papier mâché skeletons hanging at either side of the wedding altar she stands behind. Sandra is a caterer by profession and has imported her fondness for Mexican culture to this rural area of Ohio not far from Akron.
