Protected: Intimate Grove Estate Wedding | Jamie + Randy

If you looked up “smitten” in the dictionary, you’ll find these two: meet Eva and Jake. I can’t really think of a better way to describe them- they so clearly love each other! Our whole time together they were laughing and smiling which makes it so easy on me! I always say being your natural in-love […]
