Love Letters

Write each other a Love Letter to be shared on your wedding day. If you can, keep up the habit through your marriage. It will help keep you in tune with each other’s thoughts and feelings.

Here is a gorgeous wedding we did at the Four Seasons in Baltimore. I loved all the little touches from the wooden flower boxes and cloches to the wine stained menus and wood rounds. It was a pleasure working on this wedding for such a great couple.

I love this oyster shell table runner. I think it would be perfect for an outdoor beach wedding with just the runners and a lot of candlelight in clear glass on the tables. Very simple & elegant.

What An Incredible Film

What an incredible film from CinemaCake and ANOTHER thank-you from our Bride and Groom and Parents of the Bride that day. There is so much love in this family, it just pulls you in. Get out your Kleenex box!

This film is absolutely incredible.  Yes, it’s 3am.  And yes, we’re crying!  And it’s because of you (but in the best way possible :)) Andrew said it best when he said that you captured our most favorite moments of the whole day.  We don’t know how you knew which parts we loved most, but somehow you just got it.. you got the essence of “us”.. . and the best day of our lives will live on through this video for years and generations to come.  We cannot thank you enough for your hard work and we truly do appreciate your efforts and your talent.   We are so excited to share this video with our families — especially our Grand mom — and we’ll be forever thankful to you for putting together such a classy, beautiful memento for us.

Love and gratitude,
Dana + Andrew Fallis

Bride and Groom

Melissa-

After watching this video and crying through the whole thing, I just had to thank you again for such a beautiful wedding.   I am eternally grateful to you for helping make Dana’s day so magnificent.
