Harry + Brittany

  • The Beautiful Bouquet Wedding | Running Hare Vineyard

the hotel room where the girls were getting ready and gave Britt a big hug! This girl was SO excited to get married and her day was FINALLY here! Her bridesmaids surrounded her as she continued getting ready and then the flowers came… and everyone stopped in their tracks.
