Fishermen’s Inn Wedding: Jeni and Steve

Let’s be honest, when you love your couples and are blessed enough to call them all friends, it’s hard to be objective and explain all the feelings involved throughout a wedding day. So I’ll try to be as unbiased as I can… Jeni’s favorite answer to any comment, suggestion, or plan was “I love it”! […]
