K.I.P.S. if you’re struggling with your wedding plans.
Finally, here’s some great advice from Lisa. “Enjoy every minute of it – as it goes so quickly!

from all the craziness.” I’d also add, why not make that an hour and factor in some fun with
your photographer snapping shots that will put other’s wedding day photographs in the
