It’s the first Friday of Spring and we sure hope you have a little spring in your step after this week of gorgeous weddings. It truly never gets old for us and we love spending week after pretty week with all of y’all. So even though we are sending you into another weekend, have no fear – we will be here bright and early Monday morning, coffee in hand ready to deliver all the pretty you can possibly handle. And to carry you out into your day off, here is one, last heart-stopping, take-your-breath-away-gorgeous image that Elizabeth Messina snapped during her shoot with Lisa Vorce and Mindy Rice. Beyond. Simply Beyond.
