Gina was so happy and glowing all day! 


 Two brides = twice the gorgeousness. Tonya is so radiant as she shares a few moments with her daughter!

I’m a sucker for so much love- this family is SO happy for them! 


This is Tonya’s answer to the awful question of “But who will wear the tux?” that she was asked while planning the wedding. It’s right here on her middle finger!


This love is forever.
