long with kindergarten and high school graduations, lately my social media feeds have been filled with folks getting married.
While personally, I’m not a fan of big weddings, I am a sucker for a love story. May and June are the primetime for folks getting hitched and in honor of everyone tying the knot, I’m going to provide my savvy readers with my top 10 list of best wedding-themed movies. Enjoy.
