Regal Barclay Villa Wedding | Brooks + Michelle

We must admit, Brooks + Michelle’s first point of advice is spot on for their Regal Barclay Villa Wedding; “Always pray together before making huge decisions. Communicate the entire process, remain in one accord with EVERYTHING and don’t let the planning of this huge day come between the two of you!!” Please join us as we celebrate Brooks + Michelle’s Barclay Villa ceremony.
