Bespoken Bride: Meet Jordan

Jordan, Tucker, Jordan's mom, and I met downtown Greenville at Roost for the first time. I felt horrible because there was a (really good) band playing in NOMA Square, and I was completely worried that we just couldn't hear each other talk. But they were so laid back...and through our entire conversation, I knew I had to help these two plan their wedding! And so...it's happening in June :) And today I'd like to introduce you to Jordan!
