March 1, 2014 | Baby Shower

On March 1st, we hosted our second event of the year, a baby shower! What made this event even more special was that the sister of the mommy-to-be is one of BMH’s past brides! Katie was married here a few years ago, and it was so fun to have her back and hosting her sister’s […]
