After the Ceremony


You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures..now what?!

Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being Husband and Wife. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for!

Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes.

Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing.

Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! LOL! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other) and a sip of Sprite during the toast.

Have your wedding planner prepare small plates for you and your groom. Chances are you both are starving!!! Grab a quick bite and get something to drink.

Switch shoes (and/or dress)! This is the perfect time to put on your dancing shoes, gown number 2, and refresh your hair and makeup.

Once you enter the reception hall, take a moment to soak it all in. Look around at all of your family and friends who are sharing this day with you! Take a breath, grab your sweetie's hand, and get ready to dance the night away!!

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.

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…

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.
