Wedding Wednesday

  • Autumn Color Palette Inspiration

may actually be a little bit LATE for some fall wedding inspiration, I know there are some brides out there that are STILL trying to figure out accent colors and palette details for their fall weddings.

They met at their apartment complex on Monument Avenue years ago and so we began their session there.
