I’m not sure how it happened but Halloween is right around the corner (EEEEEKKKK!). Is it just me just me, or does it seems like the year is just rolling along at top speed.

A Thoughtfully Simple Romantic Wedding

Romantic Wedding Ideas

You guys. I have been telling you I’m going to post this wedding since 2012. THREE years later and I’m finally sharing these photos. Why has it taken me so long? Honestly because there were just sooooo many gorgeous photos I felt overwhelmed and couldn’t decide which to share! Problems, I know.

In fact, I procrastinated so long that this darling couple (who also happen to by my brother and sister-in-law!) have been married for three years, and I’ve already posted about their baby shower (GAWH) and my niece will be ONE next month. Wow, we’re all out of order over here. Sooooo without much more, I’ll jump into the pics (because that’s what you really want to see)!
