Even though we have been riding the summer high since Memorial Day, this is the official first weekend of summer. Which means lots of balmy nights filled with lemonade and fireflies, lots of swims in the nice cool pool, and lots of gorgeous weddings – since we are smack dab in the middle of Wedding Season, after all! Hawes Photography is here to send us off into our weekend right, with a summer engagement sesh in a barn that is full of that summer lovin’ we can’t get enough of. Until Monday LBBers! xoxo
