What you need to know about putting on boutonnieres

And 

2) When Aliya’s veil blew off and almost fell into the Mississippi River!! Luckily, it stuck on the stucco of the bridge and my second shooter was able to grab it when the wind came up again. Talk about DRAMATIC!

After a snowstorm canceled Connor's trip to MN, the three of us met up in late April in Minneapolis to take their must awaited engagement photos.
