As the gorgeous bride took her place at the altar, a hush fell over the gathered guests.  The officiant looked up from his notes and cleared this throat.  “The bride and groom don’t know I’m going to do this…” he said.  And even from behind the camera lens, I thought to myself, “this is about […]

Couples who march to the beat of their own drum, are my favorite kind of couples.  And I suppose, now, I can say that Hubble telescope themed weddings (yes, you read that right!), are my favorite kind of weddings!    Most of our GHI couples know that our big wedding planning appointment is one of […]

I pulled into my regular parking spot at the Golden Horseshoe Inn and hopped out of the car.  My dad (and our GHI Officiant) Alan was just pulling out, headed home for lunch.  He stopped behind me, idling in the road, and rolled down his window.  We often chat in the parking lot like this…about […]

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 […]

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 […]
