When considering what professionals you really need to make your day shine, don’t look past videography.

“Brides are always looking for unique ways to inject their personality on their big day. This frame is great for getting the escort cards off the table & putting them right at your guests eye level for quick viewing. The best part is that after the big day, you can hang this frame at home to display pictures, recipe cards, notes & more.” – Melissa Brown of Styled by Melissa
