@leannteresa1: Love September weddings. You’ve got a lot done. Videographer wise, it’s a good one to consider, I kinda wish I had one from the church to treasure. Best of luck with the rest of your planning.

@leannteresa1:  Thank you. Just a side note: Videographer is very important I think. 

My mother passed away on Christmas of 2011…the hardest thing was that I couldn’t hear her voice/laugh anymore. It is all I have thought of since her passing. I recently (probably while booking videographer) remembered I have video of her at my daughters 1st brithday. I am so grateful that I can hear it again once I dig it out of hiding!!

Best of luck with the rest of your planning.
