Never (ever) have I had the honor to witness the most beautiful, personal, spiritual wedding ceremony than that of Thomas and Chalee. They chose to get married on a Sunday, which was absolutely lovely. It rained on my way to their venue, Bella Terre, but completely cleared up upon our arrival. It was one of […]
