We know The Master

November 20, 2009

Glenn and I would like to congratulate our very good friend and colleague, Candice Benson of The Finishing Touch Wedding & Event Planning. She has recently been promoted to NJ State Coordinator of the Association of Bridal Consultants and most recently earned the designation of Master Bridal ConsultantTM at this year's ABC National Conference in Indianapolis. She is one of only 50 in the world to hold this title. We are very proud of her.

Kim & Chris: il Tulipano

November 9, 2009

Glenn, Joe and I shared a beautiful Saturday with an amazingly sweet and kindhearted couple. We knew from Kim & Chris' engagement session how great they were together. From the moment we arrived at the bridal prep we could see how cool and confident they were. The fellas readied themselves at The Hampton Inn & Suites in Fairfield while the girls prepped at Kim's parent's home. We all convened at il Tulipano in Cedar Grove for both the ceremony and reception. We kicked off a bit late because Father Caroll broke his eye glasses and could not see the vows. Once repaired it was smooth sailing all the way through the Viennese hour.

Halloween Engagement Session

November 3, 2009

Glenn and I headed into NYC on Saturday for a Halloween engagement session. We managed to dodge the rain and photograph Tara & Mark at some of the places that have played major roles in their relationship. They were engaged in Madison Square Park so that is where we started. From there we visited Hillstones Restaurant were they first met, stopped by Tara's old apartment, and then off to their favorite restaurant, iTrulli. They are an absolutely great couple and we are looking forward to their wedding this May.
