April is Greener Wedding Awareness Month

April has come to an end, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t keep Greener Wedding Awareness Month in mind the rest of the year.  With a huge oil spill off the Louisiana coast this week I think there is no denying that we have room for improvement in the earth-friendly department!  There are Earth

Wedding Consultation Tips

There is a lot of stuff to figure out when planning a wedding–the location, the guest list, the officiant, the wardrobe, the invitations, the food, the flowers, the entertainment, the budget…and it all takes some work.
