This wedding weekend was to celebrate Denise and Vinnie. My bestie Denise married her mestie (her man bestie) Vinnie, and they are incredible. They are both so cool, calm, collected. Really, the three Cs. I always feel like I smoked a joint after hanging out with them, that’s how chill they are. Continue reading
