Wedding Wednesday – Michelle & Ross’ Engagement Video

We know it's Wedding Wednesday but we're going to change it up a bit. Instead of sharing one of our couples' wedding day videos, we are going to share one of their engagement videos.

It showcases your story, how you met, how you got engaged, what you love about eachother and what you hope for the future. Most couples get engagement photos done so we thought, why not an engagement video? What a great memento...
