Vinton War Memorial

This space is a very magical wedding space. Well designed with a great color palate, the decor is the perfect setting for any reception. If you are that bride looking for a space that screams elegance, but don’t want to spend an arm or a leg to get it, I highly recommend you take a look at the Vinton War Memorial.

You really don’t have to do much to have an over the top look, without the over the top budget!

Really???? What can I say?

Not only one of my very best friends but hey, every guy needs a little female influence in their lives! If you haven’t seen her work, when you do, you WILL be in for a real treat. Angela is one of those rare artists, always working COMPLETLY out of the BOX! Taking it to the next level is an understatement, from a wow, to a WOW, WOW, WOW…. Always so visually appealing but more importantly what she does, JUST makes sense. 100% satisfaction is guaranteed!! Don’t take my word, visit her at You will be glad that you did and by the way, she really is not a flower snob!

Tim Martin – Guitar Guru – Keeping it local

Looking for the all can do music guy?  This guy ROCKS and believe it or not, he is right in your back yard!!! I can’t say enough about Tim.   Tim played at our client’s wedding this past weekend and I can honestly say HE really made the event!! With some classical guitar work as the bride walked down the aisle, he kept the young and old well entertained throughout the night.

Dinner Last Night! with a little tip

What I enjoyed about this meal beyond the beauty and quality of the meal, is the ease of execution after a long weekend. I recommend when menu planning, that you create menus that take less effort to plate up. Nothing is worse than when half of your guests have finished eating and the other half hasn’t even received their meal.
