  • Vintage Glam Elopement

  • Rain on Your Wedding Day

  • I don't know if it's true or just a myth, but rain on your wedding day is said to be lucky for the couple and foreshadow a happy marriage.  I can tell you that it rained on my wedding day and I just celebrated fifteen (relatively) blissful years with my husband.  Since then, I have been lucky enough[...]
  • Using Scents to Enhance Your Parties

  • I am all about great scents.  I love finding new and unique fragrances that highlight the mood I am in, the time of year, the weather or even what I am wearing.  The sense of smell is an often overlooked sense but when employed properly, can add depth and interest to any experience.  Even some major[...]

  • Behind The Lens: Jill Waldman

  • We are in the throws of wedding season and I just didn't have the heart to ask any of my photographer friends to post this month. (They were probably too busy anyway!)

  • Behind The Lens: Andy Barnhart

  • You've heard it a thousand times.  Lighting is everything.  Really, it is.  Whether you are reading in your living room, hosting a dinner party, creating a design theme for your wedding or shooting photos outside.  Lighting is everything.  Too much light and the feeling is bare a[...]
