Wedding 3On October 1st my little brother, Doren, married this lovely lady. It was an incredible day full of autumn magic, pie and (of course) lots of love. I am so excited to share photos of their special day with you!

We picked up donuts for the bride-to-be. (remember the donut shower? mhmmm) It was very laid back and fun. I loved seeing everything they'd chosen and what everyone was wearing.
