Thank you for everyone who helped with the preparations with our wedding, our family, my bridesmaids, groomsmen and friends. Love you guys. xoxo

The order of the photos does not correspond with the list. The links are attached to the name of companies or people, who we rented from, purchased, and hired for the wedding. I purchased most items online, you can always find great deals. Yes, there is a risk of not seeing it beforehand but always check the reviews. It worked out fine for me, in the end. Plus, it helped with the cost of our wedding.

I hope this helps at least one person, giving some ideas for their own wedding 🙂 If there are any questions or if I missed anything, feel free to comment or send a message. Thank you!

Wedding Photos will be coming soon – NEXT POST 🙂
