However, I know that some of you ladies are still in the planning process for your big day and I wanted to share a quick tip with you that will come in handy when you mail out your wedding invitations.
We have 4 weddings in the Thomas family this year, and I’ve learned a lot about some of the things brides struggle with when it comes to planning their wedding.

Virginia Barn Wedding Venue
Sorella Farms is one of my favorite wedding venues around! One of the most important decisions that you will be making for your wedding is the venue. It is the location that you will be holding the most-important day of your life at so it needs to be absolutely breathtaking.
