helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

If you're looking for a sweet wedding filled with sunflowers, today's wedding is just for you! Heidi and Scott created a beautiful, cozy wedding for their guests. I love their burlap table runners and DIY  photo booth. And how fun are the lanterns they released at the end of their evening? Enjoy this autumn wedding. xoxo. Jessica
