Tasha and Daniel’s black tie wedding at the Castle at Skylands Manor was definitely one for the books! These newlyweds live in Oklahoma, so they planned their wedding from afar and you can imagine the hard work that went into designing their day. I remember hearing of their plans last summer during their beautiful Sayen […]
