As the first week of the gorgeous new year comes to an end (seriously, have you seen some of the weddings that have been gracing our pages this week?!) I’ve got a little sneak peek at next week’s pretty. And these stunning blooms are only the beginning. Emily Steffen Photography has a farm wedding unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, so after you enjoy your lovely weekend, get back here nice and early Monday morning to see the rest of this sweet, sweet soiree. Until then, my loves! xoxo
