We are obsessed with M I C K E Y M O U S E!!

July is right in the heart of Wedding Season. It's a perfect month because you an count on beautiful flowers to be at their peak and the Summer Sun to show it's lovely face on your special day.

I feel extremely honored to have had the opportunity to work with the Allen Family and more specifically the lovely bride, Baylie, for her wedding day. Not only is this family picture perfect, but a kind, and giving group of people. They have an amazing group of friends who are just as sweet and giving. I feel like I really "lucked" out with this group.

Baylie knew exactly what she wanted for event and brainstorming and creating it was such fun. She had such a great team behind her to make this day go off with out a hitch.

Congrats to the lovely couple, #MrMrsSurjono

First, a peak at Pre-wedding festivities.

You can't let a Bridesmaid moment pass!
