TRUE.  The word i think of when it comes to describing Chester and Gracie is True.  Elegant and fun, their wedding was a total reflection of who they are and their wonderful, transparent personalities.  I had SUCH a blast telling their wedding day story with my camera.  Don’t forget to watch the slideshow at the bottom…Enjoy :)

A little Stuart Wietzman to start the day.

My favorite of the day.
