Father's Day 2016

June 17, 2016

Dads. Aren't they the best?! Some of my favorite moments at a wedding are when dads get to brag on their kids during speech time and the father-daughter dance. There hasn't been a wedding yet this season that hasn't left me with a few tears! Let's take a moment to celebrate  dads, pops, papas and fathers everywhere. Happy Father's Day!
