We had such a great time at Melissa and Jacob’s December Winter Wedding at The Old Cigar Warehouse! It was truly a reminder of why we love what we do. There were so many emotional moments it was easy to see that these two were crazy in love with each other and we feel blessed to get to witness these two and their families celebrate that love. And a celebration it was! The dance floor stayed packed from the moment it opened to the last dance. What a night! We can’t thank these two and their family and friends enough for being so amazing!

Please enjoy some of my favs from the day!
