I had something else planned but that will have to wait until a week when I’m not editing TWO weddings and shooting two sessions and going to graduations! Today is a good post because it’s showing you how a $10 STAMP can totally transform your wedding!! I LOVED Nikki and Alex’s wedding from this past weekend!
