I’m always looking for amazing shots, breathtaking bridal gowns, decorations and accessories. I can find beauty and inspiration for my wedding blog in the most unexpected places and moments.
It was circa one month ago, while doing my researches for a different blog, I was struck from many of these outstanding shots, by the magic they produced in a play of lights and colors, rains and stars.
