Karen and Daryls' 50th

blogEntryTopperKaren and Daryl’s 50 year marriage is the feel good story we all need as 2020 comes to a close. They met in seventh grade, got married at 18 and have shared a lifetime of family, friends, travel and adventure since then. Unable to host a traditional celebration, their family and friends recorded best wishes, congratulations, and words of love and those greetings were interspersed throughout the slide show. In true 2020 fashion, the party moved to zoom where the video debuted, and Karen and Daryl celebrated virtually with all of those near and dear to their heart.

Congratulations Karen and Daryl, your love story is truly inspiring!


An Album 12 Years in the Making

blogEntryTopperAs it happens with most events, after Ellen and Frank received their wedding photographs, the prints sat in a box for years, waiting to be added to an album. 12 years later, Ellen contacted me to design an album she could surprise Frank with on Valentine's Day. The album had a special addition, she wanted to include custom art Frank created for the response cards that many people refused to send back because they wanted to keep them.

It was such a joy to design an album for Ellen and Frank, hear about their wedding day, and help celebrate their love. Happy Valentine's Day, and I wish you many, many more.
