It was the weekend of coffee-centered engagement sessions, and you know what? I am not mad about it! 🙂   Aleta and Lior live downtown and walked over to meet me outside Methodical Coffee, which happens to be where I first met Aleta several months ago.

When I walked in the house where everyone was getting ready, I found Haley and she immediately gave me a big hug and a smile. I will admit, I am spoiled to have brides that always welcome me in to their wedding day warmly and are *so* very kind. And I already knew that was […]

At the end of the wedding as everyone was getting ready to go home, one of Beverly’s daughters turned to her and said, “Mom, you just exude elegance.” Oh how true. It just summed up the day for me! Bob and Beverly gathered with their closest family right at the height of the fall color […]
