Wrap It Up Pretty Little Black Book!
December 28, 2012
We're smack dab in the middle of the holidays this Friday afternoon. Somewhere between sleigh bells and glittery heels, and that really does make it the most wonderful time of the year. I won't keep you much longer, as I'm sure you're off to more sweet celebrations, but we couldn't resist a little peek at Monday morning's wedding from U Me Us Studios because tt's fabulous and you definitely won't want to miss it. See you then my lovelies! xoxo
