Cheers to 2014: Wedding Bar 101

One of the most common misconceptions about the wedding bar service is not thinking that it will be something your guests will remember.

Real Weddings: Warming Up With Fall Wedding Colors

Wrapping up our wedding season in late October, I’m always hoping for a sweet finish to an awesome season. Our October 2012 weddings were so unique and didn’t let the at times chilly fall weather stand in the way of their outdoor wedding celebration. Although hoping for a beautiful beach ceremony near the St Joseph […]
