I don’t know how she does it, but good golly, wedding planning extraordinaire Molly McKinley nails it every. single. time. Her aesthetic is elegant, timeless and every bash in her portfolio looks like one heck of a party that I have no doubt turned out to be absolutely unforgettable. This girl has serious talent and a true penchant for the most special of days. Oh, and inspiration shoots, too! Check out this beautiful happy hour she dreamt up for Halloween.
