It’s no secret that we love weddings, but we are taking it to a whole new level by following a real couple as they plan and execute their wedding! We want to share it all from choosing a dress to cake tastings and finding the perfect DJ and even choosing your honeymoon spot! We want to capture it all as the ultimate real-life blog series!
