Summer & Julian's Wedding: Team Member POV


I met Mahogany last year at Angela & Ashvind's Wedding and haven't seen her until just recently at Summer and Julian's wedding! It's always refreshing to see a familiar face after so long, and with that name, how could I ever forget her! She gave me the update on her brave decision to quit her full time job to focus on becoming a wedding planner!
