I love seeing the special items couples bring with them on their wedding day!  When each couple arrives we help them unpack their carefully wrapped treasures, pulled from boxes, bags and suitcases.  So when we unpacked Funko Pops of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry …I just knew it was going to be a fun day!  […]
