My Wedding: Vintage Modern

I get asked a lot about my wedding day and the mantilla that I wore, so I thought I'd share it with you! It was one of the best days of my life and don't mind talking about it every chance I get. :) When I got married, I was living in Ohio but getting married in Florida, where I grew up.
