My husband Mark and I have not had pictures done of just the two of us in a very long time. So when the opportunity presented itself, in the form of a new program from my friend Ashley Ward, of Geneva Mae Photography, I knew I had to jump on it. This is her new “In Love and Just Because” program, and I’m so happy we did this! We had a great time tonight with Ashley, taking pictures and just laughing and having fun in Massillon. This image is just our sneak peek, and I can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you Ashley!!

The practice of bartering, is an age-old tradition, where two parties exchange services or goods, in equal values. I am happy to report that this tradition has not died out completely. One of my brides, Michelle, whose wedding is coming up in a few weeks, has bartered with many of her wedding vendors for services. She in return is providing them with different services, such as a personalized journal story, or writing for business materials or social media.
I was given permission, to link her latest blog post, which features myself, and fellow local wedding planner Meredith Masaveg of Rain Wedding Planning. Please feel free to read her other entries about our fellow vendors, and her unique details for her special day. I am looking forward to working with Meredith, to make Michelle’s wedding fabulous! Enjoy!

I recently had the pleasure of helping one of my friends, Kayleigh Canter, now Kayleigh Ball, with the planning of her August 3rd, 2012 wedding in Akron, Ohio. She and her fiance’ Ryan planned a short engagement, which gave them only a few months in which to prepare for their wedding. I offered my assistance with last minute details, advice, organization, and a time line for their big day. I also helped with decoration of the wedding venue and coordination of the day’s events. She gave me a beautiful thank you letter, which I am happy to share:
“To the fabulous Madam Kim,
Thank you for helping me with my wedding! I had almost given up hope for a smooth day until you came along with your notebook and your talent! I feel so much better now that we have a plan and now that I have you to guide me. I really don’t think I could do it without you! You are a brilliant planner and an amazing friend. I am so blessed. I will never forget your generosity for coming to my rescue.
Your ‘Funky Vintage Bride’, Kayleigh”
I teared up when I read that. She is such a sweetheart, and happy to be married to Ryan! I was honored to lend a hand. I will post pictures and descriptions soon from their wedding. Enjoy!

I am very happy to announce the engagement and upcoming wedding of Azia Routson, and Alejandro Ramirez!! These two, from Findlay, Ohio, have become very dear friends of mine in the 3 years I have known them. Their wedding will take place on the University of Findlay campus on May 26th, 2012. Recently they had engagement pictures taken with Suzanne Kilcoin of All Eyes On You Photography, from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Here is her blog post, and more pictures from their session. Enjoy!
Man has this relationship been tested! Disapproval from family. Illness. Finally a stroke that sidelined Azia for so long that it postponed her degree by two years, postponed their wedding for the nth time, and proved once and for all the Alejandro is the ONLY man for her. Now, in May they will finally get married, on the campus where they have both spent so much of the last 5 years. Thanks you to Kim from Love, Laughter and Elegance for telling me about their story, and asking me to get involved. I had a great time, and met two amazing people!
