The Best Hurricane Wedding
When Florence was expected to hit during my wedding date, you could say I was a little worried. Sarah was on the phone every day working out all of our possible options! Turns out we got some wind and rain, but that didn't stop us! The venue was still gorgeous and set up beautifully for the moved indoors wedding. The whole Angus Barn team was amazing. My guests have said so many good things about how smoothly everything went and how awesome the bartenders were.Sent on 11/01/2018
