The Golden Horseshoe blog is a super fun place where you can keep up with our recent weddings (we love to give our couples a sneak peek of their wedding photos within 72 hours of their wedding day!)  I also share some snippets from our personal story, and wedding day tips to help you as you plan!

And 2) I love the […]
