Please welcome a new member to the Holt family! Pentax 6×7 review…

Hilary & David @ Thurman’s Mansion | Austin, Texas

What do you do when you grew up in Texas, your fiancé grew up in NYC, and you now both live in L.A.? You put together the perfect California/New York City wedding by way of Texas, of course.
