Posted on May 11 by Denise Potter

Isn’t love grand? We sure think so!

The very best weddings are the ones that incorporate romantic details from the bride and groom’s personal love story. Whether it’s small tokens of their time spent together or a grand gesture on the dance floor—a little romance goes a long way. There are all sorts of ways to accomplish having an incredibly romantic wedding (while still remaining modern and cool!) Here’s a list of our personal favorites!
