    i had actually already been thinking about using a lot of green in my wedding and didn’t know that it was becoming a trend. so i’m all for it!

  2. All these photos remind me of Kit. Green was her wedding pallette plan for a long time. It isn’t really a color that scream “Janice” but I think it is a beautiful concept.
