Amanda never expected to fall in love with Bud, but fate had other plans. This is a true story of opposites attracting! High school sweethearts Bud and Amanda Cramer have known each other for 25 years. They sealed the deal on July 10, 1993. Read below to find out how young love can turn into everlasting love.

After being married for many years, we have found that, regardless of how busy we are, it is very important to make time for each other.  We plan special nights that we do things together, just us.  We enjoy going to sporting events together.  The activities that we do together that allow us to really connect are taking walks, going to dinner, or just sitting outside to watch the sunset.

My advice for newlyweds would be to remember that marriage is hard work.  It takes a lot of dedication and commitment.  Remember, that when things are rocky, communication is so important.  With that being said, remember to think before you speak.  While things that are said in anger can be forgiven, they are not so easily forgotten.

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.

Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!!

So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
