Megan & Ray :: A Wedding at Fulton’s on the River

Some weddings are so so so fun that you wish they’d last for weeks! And some clients are so sweet and so amazing to work with that when their wedding is over, you shed a tear cause you are going to miss them so much. That was Megan & Ray’s wedding! And the pictures are here to prove it. Plus I really love a wedding at Fulton’s on the River. A great venue, great location and great staff. Oh, did I mention, great food! Delish! And last, but definitely not least, this wedding had an incredible lineup of vendors. The very best of everything!

The place cards were displayed on a bed of lavender in Megan’s parents antique drawers! They not only looked good, but smelled really amazing too!
