    @august15bride – I actually haven’t met her yet, but I’m finally going to see her on Thursday! I live in NYC and have been coordinating everything through a planner and my mom in Sarasota. I grew up in that area but left after high school. Still feels like home! I love Audrey’s work and she’s been great to work with from afar!
