Choosing your wedding photographer is different then choosing most vendors on your wedding day. Why? Well, from you getting ready on your wedding to the end of your reception, you’re going to spend more time with your photographer than you will your husband-to-be.

Brunch, YUM! On Sunday morning, Michael and I invited all of our Stormy Brides and Grooms to his parents’ home over for our first “Stormy Brides Brunch.” If you don’t already know, Michael and I are cliche millennials who LOVE brunch food and coffee, of course.
