It would have scared me. Five major websites used for wedding planning Pinterest, the knot, wedding wire, brides and zol a have announced plans to cut back on promoting and romanticizing plantation events. Additional E! And "Buzzfeed" news are reporting that the knot and Pinterest are removing pictures from Blake and Ryan's wedding because of where it took place. Should wedding sites pull plantation venues? What do you think? I think we have to stop pretending slavery wasn't a part of our country in history. We have to stop. Acknowledge it. We have to acknowledge it. We have to stop.
