Held in Springfield, MA on July 28, this wedding was the perfect end to Wedding Season 2010-2012, which included nine weddings in total, and was the busiest 20+ months of my life, but so. much. fun. (Before we begin, I should warn you that there’s some Kelly Carroll singing at the end of this video. I apologize in advance.)
