Wedding Tip #57

You don’t have to do height order for your ceremony. You can keep those who you are closest with, close to you.

This was just so much fun. The groom attended WVU and loved it there.

Hi Everyone!

Now that I’ve had a few days to recover (boy was I exhausted) I just want to thank you all SO much for making our day (and entire weekend) absolutely PERFECT!! You totally nailed my complete vision and I could not be more grateful for everything you have done along the way.  I 100% would not have been able to do it without your amazing team.

Thanks again, TJ and I will be forever grateful!

Wedding Tip #55

Share your budget with your vendors from the start. If they know what you want to spend, they can offer what you can afford without hesitation.

This wedding was held at Greystone Hall on the very last day of May. The weather was picture perfect. The bride wanted a touch of vintage and incredibly romantic. Her colors of muted and bright pinks with gray were just the ticket. There were many, many details. The escort cards were displayed library style as a nod to their love of reading. The burlap containers had a touch of satin ribbon scrolled with love letters. The napkins had a paper bellyband inscribed with their monogram. The light peach subtle satin linens with the fine burlap napkin were the perfect accouterment for that vintage feel.

The Philadelphia Skyline in a charcoal gray color accented by coral on this great white canvas bag. The gift included a bloody mary kit, gum, assorted munchies in a box.

Wedding Tip #54

Never borrow money to pay for your wedding. Starting your new life together in debt is a really bad idea.
