This was one of those summer weddings that just made you smile from ear to ear! After Monique & Stephen’s engagement session, I knew the wedding would be wonderful. It started with one of the most relaxed bridal party suites- Monique and her bridesmaids were so chill in the getting ready suite at Ceresvilel Mansion. […]
