08 Sep San Francisco DIY Wedding – Bombay Bride shows how it’s done!
When you ask your Photographer friend(s) to shoot your wedding on a Holiday, they get back at you by asking you to write for their Blog – on your Honeymoon. Here’s something straight out of the Devil/Bridezilla’s mouth. Unlike me talking about how cool the wedding was, how awesome I was – taking all fancy pictures, how drunk we got and how much food we ate, I am going to let the Bride do the talking.
Here’s the un-edited Content from Neha’s Q&A and the making of her DIY wedding!
