    I love to incorporate a sand ceremony into my weddings, which is a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that originates in Hawaii. The bride and groom each have a small container of a different color of sand. These separate vials of sand represent all that they were, and all that they are, and all that they will ever be. By combining their individual jars of sand together, I pronounce that, “just as these individual grains of sand cannot be separated, so may your lives be blended together for all eternity.” Regardless of where this ceremony originated, it is a beautiful and meaningful addition to your beach wedding ceremony or a very suitable alternative to a unity candle ceremony.

    An Art Vow is a beautiful work of fine art, personalized with your message of love to each other. The message can be your personal vows, a favorite poem, song lyric or inspirational passages and scripture readings. It is a lasting reminder of the promises you made on your special day. It is something that you will cherish for years to come. As it is prominently displayed in your home, it will be a conversation piece to be shared and enjoyed with family and friends for years to come.

    You have probably dreamed about this day since you were a little girl. If you are like most brides you have gone out and purchased every wedding book and magazine you can get your hands on. A flawless wedding day doesn't just happen . . . it takes planning and a lot of time and energy to bring your dream day to life. Dreaming about your wedding and planning your wedding, as you are about to discover, are not exactly the same. There are so many decisions to be made that it is no wonder that many brides quickly become overwhelmed once they begin the planning process.

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and whether you are a bride looking for a gown or have one you wish to donate, this is the perfect opportunity to make a wish come true for a woman or man going through breast cancer. "Brides Against Breast CancerTM" , “Making Memories” Campaign is a “wish-granting” service that helps put the realities of this terminal illness aside, if just for a few days, while providing the opportunity for a family to spend quality time together. Their hope is that every metastatic breast cancer patient will be able to pass from this world comforted with the joy of having left his or her family a final beautiful memory—something the family will look back on and remember for a lifetime. Patients come to them with their dreams, but only WE can help them fulfill their wishes.

    I am often asked by couples who I recommend for photography. I always tell them that their wedding photos are where the biggest portion of their budget dollars should go because your photos are where your memories are. These are the photos that will be looked at for generations to come. I have had the privilege of working with some of the most gifted and talented photographers that exist on Florida's gulf coast. The skill and artistry they bring to a wedding cannot be measured in words or in dollars and cents but in pictures . . . Your pictures!!
