Loooongtime readers may remember that I used to share weekly wedding inspiration […]

I am happy to report that the cherry blossom photo below is not an old one…it’s from last week! I caught the trees blooming out of the corner of my eye while I was driving the other day. When I went back to take some photos by them for an upcoming post, I didn’t find […]
