Erin and Kevin

Erin and Kevin got married on a gorgeous Spring day at the beautiful Lime Spring Farms. They decided on a cocktail reception rather than your “normal” seated reception. The guests were able to mingle throughout the site while munching on some heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinking cocktails.

There were many beautiful accents from the black and fuchsia linens to the peonies in the flower arrangements to the decorated wagon for the twin flower girls and the ring bearer.

Kristen and Mike’s Wedding

Kristen and Mike got married at First Reformed United Church of Christ. Their reception was held at the gorgeous, and newly opened, Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square. The reception included details such as linens alternating between chocolate brown and ivory, table #s incorporating their “baby” (a gorgeous boxer), a beautiful ice sculpture, and a rockin’ band!

Jenn and Billy’s SHOTGUN Wedding

Jenn and Billy got married on Billy’s family farm in Maryland.  This provided for an awesome backdrop for pictures.   There were wheatfields, tractors, horses, and more to take pictures by!  The ceremony was overlooking the rolling fields and the reception was under a tent nearby.  The couple wanted a rustic feel so we went with flowers as the centerpieces…some in mason jars and some in tin watering cans.  They looked great!

The ceremony was beautiful and went off without a hitch (well…almost…after the bridal party walked out and were down the aisle I decided to pull down the shade on the door to hide Jenn.  Well, the shade snapped off and scared us both and Jenn let out a loud scream!  Thankfully Jenn is a good sport and laughed it off.  It definitely got the crowd interested and looking at her!).

The couple went with a band for entertainment.  The band was great and kept people on the dance floor all night long, however, they hadn’t done many weddings so they were happy I was there to keep them on track with a very detailed schedule.

The couple decided to surprise all the guests by pulling out their shotguns and shooting at skeet.  This is where the term shotgun wedding came from!  Everyone loved it.  Another surprise that night was compliments of Billy’s sister.  She decided to hire someone to do fireworks.  There was one point where we worried they weren’t going to go off…but it all worked out in the end and the couple was completely surprised!

Lindsay and Jonathan’s Wedding

This was my first “official” wedding.  It was a good learning experience and went smoothly.  We used small trees for favors and for the table names and place cards we used flower names since the couple loved flowers.  The ceremony took place at a beautiful church in Millersville and the reception was at Cameron Estates.

Logan’s Fundraiser

One of my daughter’s former teachers has a child who has basically been in Hershey Medical all of his life.  My husband and I decided to hold a fundraiser to help raise money for them.  I put together fliers and spread the word.  We decided to do photo sessions for people.  There was a minimum $20 donation per photo session (most gave more) and then they had their pictures taken by a professional photographer – Miville Photography and Urdanetta Photography.  The photos were then posted on a password secured website where people could order prints.  All of the money from the prints then also went to the family.  We ended up raising over $1000 for the family!  That may not sound like much but in today’s economy we really were impressed that people were willing to give that much.

Surprise 30th birthday party for Tom

Amy contacted me over the summer to help her plan a surprise party for her husband’s 30th birthday.  She was a busy woman with two small children so she needed someone to help plan it.  It was an elegant outdoor party complete with catered food, candle centerpieces, cow signs, and more!

Philabundance Fundraiser

In November 2009 my husband and I decided to team up again to do another fundraiser.  This time we did one for Philabundance, a food bank in Philadelphia.  This time we offered photo sessions in exchange for a bag of non perishable food to give to the food bank.  We ended up collecting 261 pounds of food.  Wow!  Thanks to everyone that participated.
