This year seemed to fly by, but looking back at some of the happiest, most emotional moments, I have been transported back and totally overwhelmed with joy as I remember each and every wedding we were blessed to be part of this year.  2017 was a wonderful year to remember, and I wanted to share some of my favorite moments...

Like when Brady had to peer out her window to see her good friend playing the fiddle for her ceremony...

LaurenKearns_0079LaurenKearns_0079 And Brady ran instead of "recessed" back up the aisle to get to cocktail hour first! LaurenKearns_0080LaurenKearns_0080 Yes!
