This looks amazing to me!
Are there any other dates? My b-day is may 28 so trying to plan
accordingly ;) hahaha
If not, then I think lets lock it in, get the press release ready,
pick out your favorite top 3 photos of the venue, add to the press
release and lets launch it this coming monday, july 13!
Great work Femke...
