Late Summer Perfection

Drumore Estate is my favorite venue for outdoor weddings.  There is no place prettier in Lancaster County.  The grounds and gardens are pristinely perfect, and the owner and staff have a big heart for hospitality.  Everyone, including vendors, are warmly welcomed and treated like professionals.  Kudos to Karyn and LuAnn for running a first class wedding venue that's a pleasure to work at.

Groom's choice for the bridal table:  Snapdragons :)
  Vintage glass collected by the bride, and homemade candles that were oh-so-pretty!


Beautiful linens from Special Occasions

Downtown Harrisburg Riverside

Dear Mallory and Bryan,
It was great working with you!  Thank you for giving me design liberties to create the head table canopy of flowers that has been in this 'dreamer's' imagination for a very long time.
 Thanks also to Shumaker, pdt
 for supplying the mechanics for this piece.
And to Carmen Horst, my fabulous assistant for your beautiful, long, hard work!
Bouquet pictures to follow.

Thomas Beaman was the photographer of the day.

Such a pretty flower on this cake.  Baker: unknown. ( I'll gladly post link when I find out.)

Summer Weddings 2012

Summer is fading and life is
settling down in our family after a long, hard year.  Everyone has things 
happen from time to time, and we soon find out that family is THE most precious thing we own.
I can proudly say that though we've gone through the worst of times, my wonderful team has been close by my side, working harder and longer making sure that the weddings on our schedule were given the same attention as if  "All is well'.
Each wedding, large or small, got 100% of our best.   Physicians, Architects, and an NFL player, just to mention a few of our VIPs made our year great in spite of difficulties.
It would take me weeks to write about all the weddings and the lovely couples we enjoyed getting to know; so for now I'm going to just post 'bunches' of pictures  in an effort to catch- up.
BTW:  Updating my website is 2nd on the list of things to do BEFORE spending mindless hours on Pintrest.
Now all my good friends need to hold me accountable to that little 'vow to self'!

Thank you to these great professional photographers who are all so special to me:
