I have a super exciting announcement for West 5th and it’s something I have been excited to share for a long time: our wedding! If you’ve done some reading, you’ll notice I touch on small parts of our wedding planning process and have written some wedding how to’s such as this and this, but for the first time ever I’ll be featuring our full wedding on the blog for an entire two weeks!
