I can’t say enough about this couple, from day one Kayla and Edwin’s correspondence with me has been so genuine and sweet and I looked forward to every email. Their venue, The Farm at Dover is like something out of Alice in Wonderland, there’s just nooks and crannies of gardens and stone walls, and fountains, and patches of new and interesting things, the ceremony site is tucked into the woods and this house. I want to move in. The minute I walked in I found real, authentic girls having fun, like this group was fun! and everyone was smiling, there was no running around making sure everything was perfect, there was way too much cheers-ing and laughing to be had. Kayla’s dress, Edwin’s smile, her parents tears, their friends laughter, all made for one incredible day. Enjoy the preview! Vendors listed at the bottom.
