Sometimes you go to work, spill coffee on your shirt, read your book instead of eating your lunch, and basically count down the seconds until you can blow that popsicle stand…and other times…you see the love of your life from across the room and fall head over heels.

  In July, I was present at Caitlin and Tyler’s wedding to coordinate the moments of their very special day.
