NICOLE AND JIMMY'S WEDDING

May, 2010 in Brooklyn

"Our wedding was even better than we'd anticipated. It was so fun to have all of our family and friends together in Brooklyn. It took a LOT of planning and organizing in advance, but it paid off and the day went smoothly. I wish we had a few more hours to keep the party going, it all went by so quickly!"
