I am pretty amazed by what some of our featured wedding couples are able to pull off with their budgets! This couple held a wedding for 250 people on $10,000! Pretty impressive, I'd say. Of course they made sure to budget for the photographer and got someone whose work they really loved! I think Jason Wright did a wonderful job capturing this couple's day. I think my favorite detail from this wedding is the simple, chic centerpieces! Until next time… xoxo, Jessica
