Invitations the first impression

In a world that is going a million miles a minute – first impressions play such a significant role in setting the tone for your Happening.

Life’s a Gift!

Along the way I was taught the phrase today is a gift… That’s why it’s called the present…This has been such a valuable thought process for me to embrace; I have tried to incorporate it in all aspects of my life. I do have everything I need at this moment, the simple fact of being able to contemplate this thought, right here right now, is validation I am alive and conscious and that life is a gift.

Morning Wedding

I love the fact that we are breaking down the barriers around the traditional wedding format. It makes sense as we as a people evolve, and grow, just in sheer numbers. We need to look at alternative ways to create and punctuate this life-altering happening.
