Kicking off #MissSFVirtualWedding blogposts with the details of our first wedding party, which I absolutely MISS ALREADY!!!

I started looking through all the designer earrings available and narrowed down on chandbali earrings. To my surprise, they had an impressive curation of designer bracelets too.
