We already know that weddings can be stressful at the best of times, getting to the venue, dealing with the family, praying for good weather, and that’s before you even factor in the kids.

Now just to get them to stand still long enough for the photos…
Pastels are perfect for summer weddings and there is no exception when it comes to baby clothes.
