Cassandra & Derrick’s Wedding in Sarasota

2.3.18 It seems like just yesterday that Cassandra told a group of us girls that if she didn’t meet someone within the next 6 months, she would probably move back to New York. Not long after, Cassandra’s best friend (and future maid-of-honor) Sarah, introduced her to Derrick! Let’s just say, our girl didn’t move anywhere! […]
