Yep, this wedding, photographed to perfection by...

Engagement Party for Laura Hooper

I'm a self professed Laura Hooper stalker. I love, love, love her calligraphy work and from the looks of it, everyone else does too. I bet that if we crawled all of the past events we've featured on SMP, Laura's name would come up the most because, well...she's just that good. So when I heard that she is getting hitched in a few months, I just about burst with wedding joy. And if her engagement party, designed by the fabulous...
