Free Wedding Classes with Lubbock Parks & Recreation!

I’m a huge fan of offering free wedding planning resources. I don’t think finances should be a barrier to a low-stress wedding day, so I make sure to share plenty of tips and tricks on social media and to offer occasional free classes. This spring, I’m teaming up with Lubbock Parks & Rec to offer a series of FREE classes to help local folks with their wedding planning.
