One of our favorite aspects of a well-planned wedding is a lounge area that not only looks phenomenal in the space, but also is truly functional. A major downside to one of the biggest inspiration troves (Pinterest), is that there are tons of lounges and areas that look so beautiful, but when actually executed aren’t […]
