Khayla and Megan had the cutest, most laid-back summer brunch wedding!

Is baby Elodie not the smiliest baby you’ve ever seen? I was pretty much asking myself that very question the moment I met her.

Brianna’s mother Ashanti brought her to Inniswood Gardens on her birthday. It was after a day full of birthday fun, she told her she was ending the festivities with a mother-daughter photo shoot!

Mel + Mere, they did it their way. After eloping in May, they celebrated with family and friends in July at BrewDog! Two celebrations are better than one!
