By Kelley / October 26, 2015 /

By Kelley / September 7, 2015 /

The weather this week in August was a little weird. It had been in the 90s until the day I flew into Minneapolis several days before Kimber + Devlin’s wedding, at which point it dropped into the 60s.

North Georgia Mountain Wedding In Big Canoe – David + Christine Got Married

By Kelley / October 20, 2014 /
