The sled is old and worn, and takes up precious space in our crowded prop inventory, but every so often, the perfect snowy wedding day arrives, and I dust it off and excitedly carry it outside for a few moments of glory!  Cori and Jeff had the perfect winter wedding day – cold, but not […]

I’ll admit it, birthday parties are my thing.  They make me so darn happy.  I don’t know why I love them so much…I just do.  Every year with our girls is magic, and I love celebrating their milestones with a special party.  Lyra is our December baby, and her party always ends up being just […]

His suit was crisp and his cane was elegant and polished.  And although his step may have been slowed a little by Time, the twinkle in his eye and his quick wit were as sharp as ever.  I introduced him to the wedding officiant, and he looked him up and down and said with a […]

The Golden Horseshoe Inn has been around for a very long time…192 years to be exact, it was built in 1827!  I like to think that a building that has stood the test of time is the perfect spot to start a marriage that will stand the test of time!  There is not much that […]

His voice was beautiful, but the respect and love that shone in his eyes was even more so.  Best Man speeches can be tricky – how do you walk the line of funny, yet meaningful, entertaining yet heartfelt…?  We have coached many a nervous best man through his speech, but I don’t think we’ve ever […]

Why “whimsical” you say?  How about a Groom with a Top Hat (yasssss!), and a Bride with the most amazing purple shoes (I’m telling you now, there are going to be a lot of shoe pictures – I couldn’t control myself in the face of such awesomeness!).  How about some spooky Halloween touches, like a […]

Joanna and Andrew were married on a perfect autumn day in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  We worked with this sweet couple for a year to plan their special day, so by the time their wedding day was here, they felt like friends not clients.  This outdoorsy couple loves to hike and explore, and I think […]

Barbara and Jed’s beautiful elopement was everything a wedding should be…elegant, gorgeous, simple, full of love and just perfect for them!  Barbara and Jed were one of the most easygoing couples we worked with this year.  We planned their whole wedding in about 3 emails I think!  We hosted a lovely private ceremony, and our […]
