– Wedding Videos –

Happy June everyone!

One of the biggest decisions you will need to make for your big day is how you want to capture the moments. Yes, pictures are great for sharing on Facebook and making scrapbooks, but it’s so much more than that. I don’t know about you, but I love to go back and reflect on the most important day of my life. Whether it’s because I am feeling down or just want to relive those precious moments. All of those happy-in-love and excited feelings come flooding back!

One of the best decisions that my now husband and I made was to have a video! For those who could not make the wedding, they were able to see what others who attended did. A video captures every emotion your feeling right at that moment. And not to mention all of your goofy faces and ridiculous dance moves that you like to make with your wedding party!

Here is am amazing video, shot by Jordan Rioux, of Joe and Jessica’s wedding at The Aspen Room.…/0ByvAPT-Q46-Vd1lxWnFmai0yN…/view…

I hope you have an amazing day. And happy planning everybody!

Just remember to have fun…you’re about to MARRY the one you love. Nothing else will matter once you see each other and say I DO!


-It’s All in the Details-

Hello brides, grooms and wedding enthusiasts!

If we know one thing after the countless number of weddings we’ve done over the years…we know that showing off your wedding personality is all about the details. Just a few hints of your relationship, likes, interests, favorite foods, etc.. throughout the ceremony and/or reception can help make your wedding unforgettable.

These simple hints can be as easy as placing a picture of you two on the guestbook table, putting your initials on the favors, or adding a candy buffet because everyone knows you are a HUGE sweet tooth! These little things will have your guests saying, “Oh, that is so her” or “I cannot believe he actually wore batman socks”!

Check out some personalized details some of our Brides and Grooms added to their BIG day!
