When little kids go to school, they are taught to be “bucket fillers”.  I remember my own little girls coming home excitedly to tell me that they had learned all about people who were “bucket dippers” and “bucket fillers”.  A bucket dipper takes water out of your bucket, and leaves you empty.  A “bucket filler”, […]

  The Golden Horseshoe Inn was definitely in a New York state of mind for John and Kayla’s beautiful wedding day!  So many guests traveled from out of town to be a part of this special day.  Many came from New York, and we were charmed by their accents, and their deep love for one […]

During a quiet moment on Tammy and Stan’s wedding day, Tammy’s son Logan pulled her aside and said “I was watching you during the ceremony mom, with all the mist swirling around you, and I thought to myself, wow, she is literally on cloud nine”.  So despite the rain and fog, everyone began referring to […]

  Our bride Margaret’s shoe game is strong…very strong.  So, if you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I think I’ll be the first bride to wear Lemon Meringue Pie themed shoes on my wedding day”, I am sorry to tell you that you are a few days too late 🙂  Margaret looked adorable at every wedding […]

Snuggled in the back seat, on the drive to the mountain top, Ryan said to Cara “so how did your morning go?” and she replied with a laugh “hair was interesting…the beginning stages of ‘the pouf’ are truly terrifying”.  This sort of sums up Cara and Ryan for me.  They are just so light-hearted and […]

I met our bride Danielle for the first time when she arrived for her tour of the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  By the time her tour was finished, I felt like I had known her forever, and we just knew we would be working together to plan a wonderful (stress-free!) wedding day!  Danielle is such a […]

 Juli – our amazing Canadian bride, grew up not far from where I did!  We planned everything via email until we finally met in person the day before her wedding day!  During planning, I always ask for a few words or phrases to help decipher each couples individual style.  The helpful answers are often something […]

Sometimes I think that the wedding industry likes to make couples feel like they have to spend a year (or longer) planning their big day – I’m sure the thought is that…the longer a couple plans, the longer they shop as well!  Michelle and Brandon’s gorgeous, heartfelt wedding proves that even a short planning time […]

Tracy and Wayne stepped out of a magazine and into the Golden Horseshoe Inn – it sure felt that way anyhow!  A gorgeous classic couple, who brought a gorgeous classic car (I really did feel like I was shooting magazine photos when Wayne helped his stunning bride up onto the hood of the car!)  We […]

“I’ve brought a few things with me…” she said, reaching into a leather satchel and pulling out little boxes and treasures wrapped in tissue.  “Once you see my garter, everything will make sense!” Hug told me excitedly, with a twinkle in her eye.  And sure enough, as I carefully unwrapped her garter the following morning, […]
