I am having a spring wedding, my colours are pink,purple,sliver and white.FI and I have been engaged for 2 yrs.We want our wedding day to reflect us and our families. Our ceremony is going to be on the headlands in the coastal town where we live and our reception will be in a function room on the the water canals at our local club.

5 months to go

We are now 5 months away from the big day. We have a had a few up and downs in the last few months.We got double booked by the photographer and Dj. I have found a new photographer and Dj and I think they are better choices and than what we had picked before.
