Bethany and Fred’s Johnstown, PA Wedding was the perfect event to make me realize how much Johnstown has stayed in my heart. It never fails to make me appreciate where my roots are and where they’ll always be (even as my love for Harrisonburg grows). Their ceremony and reception were held at the Main Event by […]
