Baytown's Hidden Wedding Treasures: Part 1
JUNE 20, 2016  I SABRINA GALLOWAY - TOURISM VISITOR OUTREACH SPECIALIST
To some weddings, dollar signs, love, and credit card debt are all synonymous. As a young girl who is happily in love, I can tell you that at some point they’ve all seemed like the same spiraling circle as I bounced each idea back and forth in my mind.
