Planning Your Wedding

The average working person does not have the time to devote to planning and organizing an event.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  You have imagined and watched it in your head like a really good old movie since you were a little girl. For some, it’s a wedding on a resort beach with just your closest family and friends; flip flops in hand, sand in your toes, carefree and laid back, perhaps in a sundress.

For others, including myself it was always the fairytale.  A church ceremony with hundreds of guests all awaiting my arrival.  The wedding dress, ballroom style with a cathedral style veil trailing far behind me.  (more…)

Choosing the right Wedding Photographer

When looking for a wedding photographer, most couples are not sure where to begin. Photographers are online, in magazines and at trade-shows, but how do you know who will be right for you and your wedding day?
