That's right, I said party because not only did this wedding group eat and drink some fab food and wine but they also partied it up on the croquet field to the tunes of a local jazz band. That sounds like an absolute blast to us! Captured by...

Main event cool. With details that are off the charts gorgeous and yet an element of fun that I always want to see infused into EVERY get-together. And this one, designed by the fab Jennifer at...
