Museum of Life and Science Wedding: Grant and Sarah are Married!

My family has spent a lot of time at the Museum of Life and Science, but doing a wedding there was such a great experience! Sarah and Grant had the perfect weather, and every detail came together perfectly. I also have to mention how fun it was to take wedding pictures in a Tree-House which is officially a first for me. Congratulations Sarah and Grant!
