Don’t rain on my parade!

It all starts with that beautiful moment when you said “Yes!” and decided to spend the rest of your life with your best friend: then comes the planning, preparation, tastings, florals, laughs regarding the choreographed introduction your fiance wants to do, and then comes the look.
