Hey there! This is something new I don’t share often about. I LOVE a good project! Especially if it comes with a dramatic before/after photo.

I’ve got yet another beautiful wedding to share with you today! We celebrated Ariana and Brandon with a very intimate ceremony consisting of their family and a few close friends.
