Slate Blue Estate Wedding at Polen Farm in Dayton Ohio | Wes & Kate

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is walking into the bridal suite for the first time. The best part? Finding the leading lady of the day and giving her the biggest hug! Why? Because all my Rachael Leigh Brides are simply the greatest people and by the time I walk into that […]
