Liz and Adam wanted an elegant wedding that was an ode to their family, friends, and history; their Townsend Hotel wedding perfectly did just that.  Family and friends were omnipresent throughout the day and were constantly sharing a memory or laugh.  Zoey, the family dog made an appearance and stole some hearts along the way […]

Business is a funny thing; every day, wedding, and couple is different.  Just when you think you have it figured out, business throws you a curveball.  The curveball came in the overwhelming enthusiasm and swift decision-making Sarah had when scheduling her engagement photos.  Surrounded by family and their support, Steve surprised Sarah and proposed to […]

As the year comes to a close, I normally begin planning the changes I would like to make over the winter.  Business normally slows a bit, or at least changes gears, and I use the time to work on updating my marketing and set goals and action plans for the year.  However, this year I thought […]
