Vow Renewals, Sweethearts and Gay Marriage

August 27, 2015

We’ve been privileged, this week, to do quite a few vow renewal ceremonies AND gay commitment ceremonies. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, we’ve also had some childhood sweetheart marriages, where people have reconnected. For us, an absolutely fabulous month. Also a very cohesive – connected – one too! What all of these, seemingly […]

Shoes

August 27, 2015

I was watching one of those wedding shows on reality tv, and was mesmerized by the stiletto heels that everyone was precariously perching on. Years ago, when I came to this Island, I lost the heel tips off every pair of Italian and Frency

Too Many Cooks

August 26, 2015

There’s an old saying that too many cooks can spoil the broth. Tonight, I learned that the same can be true about too many photographers and iPhone videographers at a wedding.

Reality TV and Other Really Stupid Things

August 26, 2015

I had one of those Fridays, where I was working on the computer and waiting for phone calls, so, like many of you on a Friday, I turned on the TV to do some wedding research. There are a few cable channels that have wedding shows, but there’s one that’s dedicated to the wedding biz […]

What It’s All About.

December 28, 2014

I’ve had a pretty perfect Christmas and not one bit of it was about the presents, although we all had a lot of fun with presents. It was perfect because it was about family – our child and his…an much older brother hanging with his little sister…bonding with my husband’s daughter….watching him be a father, […]

Thoughts on Our Weddings

September 4, 2014

We had a great wedding the other day, and my partner and I were feeling particularly good about our wedding company and the way we do business. We started out in the wedding business by being scouted and hired by one of the first and best destination wedding companies in Key West. We earned our […]

Getting Marriage Right

July 15, 2014

A Key West DJ friend recently did a facebook post on another DJ’s dilemma, looking for input from other wedding professionals. The way it was put on the post, a DJ performed at a wedding where the party was rocking, the dance floor was constantly full and every guest expressed that they had a good […]

Emailing

July 6, 2014

I just got another one of those emails asking me to describe our services. Would you like me to translate the complete works of Shakespeare into Armenian and email that too??? It would be as useless as anything I could write in response to an email inquiry like that. How do I know what to […]

Seaweed

July 6, 2014

I was just hunting for the draft of a blog post I wrote a while ago, and I came upon a little box on the page. It said “Top Searches” and then “why so much seaweed in beaches in Key West”. That really surprised me. Why? Because there really isn’t that much seaweed on Smather’s […]

What Do People Usually Do?

January 19, 2014

That’s a pretty loaded question that I get asked time after time, especially when it comes to ceremonies other than weddings. It’s easy to understand why. There are a lot of traditions associated with weddings and no matter how many traditions are kept or thrown aside in a wedding, everyone pretty much knows what those […]
