Our Abbreviated Wedding Video…

Here it is!  Our highlight video from our wedding!  I went back and forth about having a videographer.  So many people said you don’t really need a videographer, but thank God I did not listen.  We have a longer version with all the events from our wedding day, but this is our abbreviated version.  I…

Creating Your Ceremony…

We decided that we wanted to have a very traditional Catholic Church ceremony for our wedding.  It actually wasn’t even really a question between the two of us, we both sort of knew this was how we would get married. I love the ceremony part of weddings because not only does it make it official,…

Cutting Cost…Wedding Style

As I have expressed in other posts, planning a wedding is very expensive and at times shocking!  When we were planning our wedding, I felt like every place that I called to price out doubled in price as soon as I said the words “for my wedding.”  It was so insane, but people know that…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…
