We have been blessed to have been featured on the Southern Celebrations Magazine Blog! This is in addition to having been featured in the latest edition of Southern Celebrations Magazine (vol. 6). We are very grateful to have worked with the publisher, Virginia Conaway Buckner, to share our styled bridal photo shoot from July of 2016, with readers nationwide. Thank you so much, Virginia!
We want to also thank our incredible team of vendors and models. We could not have done all of this without your hard work, talent and vision! Y’all Rock!!
On Saturday, November 25th, 2017, my fantastic team of vendors and models descended upon the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Canton, Ohio, for a styled bridal photo shoot. I have been planning this event for some time. One of my favorite movies stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire – Funny Face. It’s the only movie they ever made together. My video partner, Joseph Testa Productions, filmed the whole day, and put together a great video! We would like to share it with you! Just click the link and enjoy!

On July 9th, 2016, we had the pleasure of hosting the wedding of Rick and Jan Lehman. This was a very special occasion, as this was the first wedding we have planned for family members. Rick and Jan wanted casual and fun, with the feel of a family picnic. We had great music, delicious food, cornhole games, and karaoke in the evening. All in all, a great day!
We provided planning and coordination, stationery, decorations and florals.

We collaborated with several awesome vendors on our very first Styled Bridal Photo Shoot, which took place on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016 at Spring Hill Historic Home in Massillon, Ohio. Formal pictures and post to come soon, but first we wanted to share with you the video feature that our video partner, Joseph Testa Films, put together for us. All vendors are credited in the comments on their blog. Enjoy!

We have been blogged! This time, with one of our videography partners, Joseph Testa Films. We first met Joe on Facebook, chatting on several occasions in different wedding planning and industry-related groups. When the opportunity came up to plan a destination wedding for one of our couples, Azia and Hondo, on relatively short notice, Joe and his wife Peggy happily agreed to assist us with videography for the wedding. They did a fantastic job! We highly recommend Joe for all of your video needs!
Since then, we have collaborated at several bridal shows, and often promote special deals with each other, in order to maximize value, while not sacrificing quality of service, for our clients. We also co-administer several wedding message groups together on Facebook, providing planning advice and resources for brides and vendors.
Recently, Joe sent us a short questionnaire, using the answers to create a feature about our business. Below is the link to the post on Joe’s blog. Enjoy!
