“Style is the perfection of a point of view.” - Richard Eberhart
Sometimes great advice comes from the poets.
Other times, if you are lucky, the best advice comes directly from your father:
“Fashion and style are very different. Fashion is dictated. Style is exclusively yours. And while fashion is fleeting, style has passed the test of time.” - David Wood
And never is style so important than on your wedding day. Lookin’ good Andrew.

It is so very gratifying to hear how a bride feels about her wedding day… after the day.
Every wedding has a snafu or two. It just does. Planning every detail still leaves room for unpredictability. But it is how you handle the hurdles that makes the difference. The same could be said about life.
Thank you, Christine for sharing (read more here).
Your honesty is much appreciated. Your sheer joy on your wedding day was not lost on any of us.

The dashing couple resonated the sentiment of Old Hollywood.
The worn brick and wood of the funky space flickered in the shadows of the distinctive lighting.
Crafted beer and custom linens.
The warm glow of love on a chilly winter night in Maine.
And the band rocked everyone to the stroke of midnight. What a way to end the year and begin the next.
Cheers Jessica & Jonathan!… to you and your first anniversary.
Happy New Year will always be Happy Anniversary. Quite a celebration.

With all the hustle, bustle and hype, the holiday season can often blow by without you taking a breath or enjoying it with your best bud.
My merry advice? Get a box of Cheerios, scrounge up a few pipe cleaners and string and bend yourself some candy canes.
These canes may not be the most grand … but this time of year it is all about those moments, right?
Oh yeah, and they are also pretty good to munch.
I am always honored and grateful to be a part of so many milestone celebrations.
In the next few days I will celebrate a milestone of my own as we welcome the newest addition to our family. A new baby is on the way. Soon. Very soon.
But before all that I would just like to say “Thank You” to each and every one of my fabulous clients this year - and their family and friends - who have held their breath and trusted that I would be there for their big day … big belly and all. Their patience and sense of humor sustained me through a busy and unique season.
We made it!
Also, thank you to all my fellow wedding professionals and their wildly talented ways who lent an extra hand or two all season long. We make a great team.
I am proud to be able to share a small part of my life with you, just as you have all shared yours with me.
b merry, baby.

After meeting on the sunny docks of Portland, the bride and groom boarded a beautiful custom-built Hinkley bound for Peaks Island.
The grounds of the TEIA Club were peppered with bright reds, oranges and pinks in the hundreds of tissue paper poms, hand-made pillows and fabulous florals.
A small canon was fired as the couple kissed and the crowd went wild.
Into the September twilight the celebration roared on the banks of the island; no person missed a savory bite nor their turn on the dance floor.
Cheers Katie & Joe! … to you and your first anniversary. May your lives continue to be filled with delectable foods and adoring family and friends. And may the brightness of your day always make you smile.
