Destination wedding

We had a wedding a few hours away from our home in a different state. I found Wes and Monica through wedding wire and they were very responsive and go the extra mile to make sure the couple's day is everything they dreamed of. I couldn't have pictured a more perfect ceremony! Thank you Wes and Monica!!
