Don't Do It Solo

From the Bride: Preparing a wedding can be very exciting but at times incredibly stressful on the bride and the people around her. My advice, especially for brides who like to do a lot of the planning themselves is to ASK FOR HELP from the people around them or if you have the money in the budget, hire a planning service.

A Whimsical Romantic Travel Experience

When we started planning our wedding we wanted to have a whimsical, romantic, and vintage theme but somehow incorporate our travel experience. We had our guests sign map as our guest book. We used antique globes, old family photographs, and a large mailbox structure for our programs to capture the spirit of our wedding theme

Reception Table Destinations

It was actually my husband, Jason who came up with the idea of having each table labeled as a destination or country we had been together. We decided that each of our guests would receive a passport as a placement card so they would feel like they would be traveling.

Wedding Video: Yay or Nay?

Hiring Andy Owen of Owen Video was a last minute decision which everyone was so thankful for. Andy was able to capture all our special and exciting moments of the day. We were brought to tears and able to relive our day over and over again with his footage.
