I know, sounds funny but this is the best  line from Kristin, as you can guess, 15 minutes before she walked down the aisle and she said it with so much excitement, I could not resist.  We were sitting in the bridal suite and she was so cute, chatting it up with all the girls and she kept saying it, well until I said ‘it’s about that time 🙂 ‘ There are couples and families that I meet that you just connect with- you almost feel like family at times when working with them.  Working with Kristin, William and Eva (mother of the bride) wasRead More →
