Inside the Launch of the Wedding Library's New Location
Posted by Darcy Miller
Last night, I was thrilled to host cocktails to celebrate the Wedding Library's new location. As always, our contributing editor Claudia Hanlin did a great job throwing an amazing event. After browsing the new location, we met up with lots of our industry friends to toast Claudia at Rouge Tomate. Browse the photos below for a look inside the fabulous party!
