Chris’ Tip Jar – Selecting your Wedding Photographer

Selecting your photographer for your wedding, after maybe your caterer and day of coordinator, is perhaps the highest priority vendor choice you will have to make throughout your wedding planning process. Your photos will last forever and will be the few tangible memories you can keep from your wedding.

Personalizing Your Wedding with Food. YUM!

I’ve been thinking about the differences between weddings now and weddings in the 70’s and 80’s when my cousins and siblings were getting married.

The days of cookie-cutter weddings are gone, as millennial couples place a high priority on creating an event day experience that reflects who they are, as a couple.
