Carter and Michael are great friends from his time in

I could tell that from the first 5 minutes of meeting her and then as I got to know her throughout the last 8 months, I found out that Britt has been a princess for a LONG time. That’s how everyone talks about her. She’s just so sweet and kind and “princess-like”. This description couldn’t have rang more true than on her wedding day. I walked into the bridal suite and there she was, curling her hair and singing along to a disney sound track with her gorgeous voice! Britt was so excited… and a little nervous because  everything about
