  • I had lunch with Lora Ward of A Day To Remember Wedding Consultants this last week. It was nice to sit and break bread, so to speak, and talk non-shop for awhile. Lora shared some insight and advice about taking care of parents and the role we sometimes have to take on as children. Last month Lora was our Spotlight On vendor in our Memory Journalists newsletter. Here is a few things she had to share with us:My top favorite item to incorporate into event design...
    Emotion (includes laughter, happy tears, sentimentality, anticipation and even awkward embarrassment.)

    The CD currently playing in my car isâ?¦
    A collection of funk, disco and old school â?? the 70â??s were my formative dancinâ?? years!

    The most extravagant wedding I ever planned wasâ?¦
    I have enjoyed coordinating many wonderful weddings, however, one of the more beautiful and a bit on the â??extravagantâ?? side was one held on a hillside above the Pacific Ocean, at the beautiful Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, CA. All guests wore white, the groom entered the ceremony riding a beautiful white horse, the bride enjoyed two wedding gowns, white doves were released, the guests dined on a 6 course dinner in a stunning theatrically lighted room, the wedding cake was taller than the groom, and the eveningâ??s entertainment was a famous Flamenco guitarist flown in for the reception.

  • Or Ty for short. I had lunch at Carie's house this last week and was able to bring the camera and snap a few of her dog Tiberius. He's stinkin' cute! I asked Carie to share a bit about Ty...

    "I rescued Ty 2 and a half years ago from Calavaras County. He was a year and a half old. I found him on Petfinders.com. I had always wanted a Boxer and found Ty 3 dogs down on the available Boxers list. In his photo he looked like he was looking right at me and I knew he was going to be my dog. He was in a situation where he was not getting enough people time and kept escaping. Boxers are known escape artists. His owner wanted a better life for him so he put him in foster care to be adopted. Ty was on the website just half a day when I found him. I didn't know he had stripes until I picked him up and I went crazy when I saw how beautiful he was. He walked right up to me and leaned against me looking at me like "are you my mother?" He came home and was perfect from day one. He's my angel. He's with me almost every hour of every day. As you saw during your visit, he is a sideshow!"

    He got to eat his lunch right away too when I arrived and the look he gave me when he was done - and hello - wanted more! Priceless!And then we played the "Attack the Cheese Grater" game. He got all excited for this!!! He was so intent on the cabinet where the grater resides and as soon as it was open...boy look out! Carie told him to wave - and he did! And seriously - he has the longest tongue ever! What a ham - he totally posed it up for me.
    Thanks for sharing Carie. Oh - and Ty is the official mascot for Ultimate Fitness!

  • Teresa took her girls to the Fresno Zoo a week ago Saturday and they had a exhibit where you could feed the giraffe. They looked so cute in their giraffe print dresses feeding him leaves. I love that when he stuck his tongue out Grace stuck hers out too :0) Thanks for sharing Teresa!

  • I received this little cute card in the mail last friday. The envelope was all decked out in little heart stickers and the front of the card had the cutest embellishment and read "on a sunny day"...
    I was totally eager to open this envelope. I even read it aloud to Cory!

    "A boy named Adam and a girl named Denice got married. It was a beautiful day with all their family and friends coming together from far and near. There was great good, beautiful flowers, glowing candles, music and dancing. Everyone was dressed in their finest. A wonderful photographer named Jennifer Dunham-Starr captured it all. A few months later when all the food was gone, the flowers wilted and the candles melted, a spectacular book arrived. The book created by Jennifer allowed Adam and Denice to relive their special day over and over again.

    Now whenever they want, if they are happy or sad, they can look through the book and it brings smiles to their faces. It reminds them of how lucky they are. The book allows them to appreciate their great family and friends and their wonderful life. They will treasure it forever!

    Thank you Jennifer Dunham-Starr from the bottom of our hearts."
    --Adam and DeniceI just love that we accomplish over and over again what we set out to do. To "teach others the passion of living". We continue to build up friendships and I love that our clients view us as their friends, as do we.

    Thanks to our whole Memory Journalists team in helping me make such album creations possible with the added artistic viewpoints you bring to each wedding day.

  • Saturday Jen and Christie celebrated their vows to each other in front of family and friends at Lake Natoma Inn. Nicole, Tina, and I were honored to be there to shoot their wedding photos. I can't wait to show you more and tell you more about this awesome couple - laughs and tears were shared by all in attendance at Lake Natoma Inn, including us.
    Here's just a few images as a sneak peak. And a little tribute to their fathers on this Father's Day weekend. Check back in just a few short weeks for their extended sneak peak.
