Hi, I'm Amanda. I am legally married to my loving husband, but we are planning a larger wedding celebration to incorporate both of our families and close friends. We married early because my pastor, my grandpa, is not in the best shape and we are not sure that he will be with us in June. At our small ceremony on the beach we only exchanged rings, and signed the marriage certificate. It was a beautiful very small, very private union, but we are now looking forward to the exchanging of our vows, and doing the PARTYY side of things in June.

Is it actually worth it?
Amanda in Hair and Makeup, on January 26, 2018 at 12:05 PM
