Couples are always asking me how many they should order so I thought I'd share my equation with you too! It's really simple. First, determine how many hours you'll have the bars open during your reception. For example, if your reception will be five hours long, then the bars will likely be open for 3 1/2 hours (allowing 1 1/2 hours for dinner-ask your banquet manager how long they estimate dinner service for all courses if you're not sure). Remember to include the cocktail hour! Then multiply the number of hours by 1.5. This is the average number of drinks that a guest will have per hour. Finally multiply that number by the number of guests your expecting. Here's what this looks like:
As Fall weddings are quickly approaching I wanted to share one of my favorite autumn designs with you – the Vineyard Grape! This design has immediately become one of our best sellers and is just perfect for winery weddings.
Hi everybody! Jenny & I are back from the trade show in Ohio and I am thrilled to say that my line of notecards are now available in shops in Ohio, West Virginia & Kentucky!! How cool is that!?! We also met with several sales rep companies while we were there. It's all pretty exciting!
We are here in Ohio and have just set up the booth… the trade show opens tomorrow morning at 9:00 – Jenny and I are really excited!! The building is enormous – so much bigger than I thought it would be!
As many of you know – I love all things vintage! Whether it's authentic vintage or vintage inspired – I'm a fan! So, you know I was thrilled when Albemarle Vintage Limousine opened there doors here in C-ville a couple of year's ago… While a modern limousine is a great way to move your entire wedding party – I can't think of anything as fabulous as one of these cars to drive you and your sweetie off into the sunset, can you?
The Knot.com's wedding store is having a huge 3 day sale – including their great tote bags!!! I love these for bridesmaid gifts and welcome gifts for guests at the hotels! Get them while you can – these prices won't stick around!!
Jenny and I are super busy getting ready for our very first wholesale trade show…. We leave on Wednesday and will be there for about a week. We're going to Columbus, Ohio and I'll be blogging and tweeting about our trip so stay tuned!
On July 25th I had the pleasure of assisting one of the sweetest couples on the planet! Erin & Andy were married at Farmington Country Club and what a great time we had!! Bill and Anne Holland of Holland Photo Arts sent us few sneak-peek photos that I'm excited to share here.
I'm so excited to share that we have a wedding in The Knot magazine's Fall/Winter 2009 issue – this is the NATIONAL issue of the magazine!!!

I'm planning to post the wedding to my portfolio soon… In the meantime, I hope you enjoy perusing the images here and run right out and buy your own copy!
