Action 9? Better Business Bureau? All I know, is don’t trust this woman with your items …

On October 8, 2009, I dropped off several items to be consigned with It’s a Bridal Thing. At the time, it was located on 7512 E Independence Blvd, Suite 104, Charlotte, NC 28227. I spoke with the owner, Sonya Fogle, and she agreed to sell three items for me: a wedding dress, a veil, and…

‘You’re every line, you’re every word …’

As if designing a wedding album isn’t enough fun, I got to design one for one of my closest childhood friends not too long ago. Jenny and Gary got married in May 2008 and I got to be a huge part of it by creating their graphics – wedding programs, favor books, and their wedding…

Wedding bloopers

A picture is worth 1,000 words (even taken with your own camera) but occasionally, taken out of context, the words can be much different than the reality.

Don’t bring a camera to a wedding

Unless you are the photographer, of course. I have worked with wedding photographers for years who have preached this. Your “job” as a wedding guest is to – be a guest. I fully understand why people ignore this – they want their own pictures, they don’t want to have to purchase them from a photographer…

Stoli, beach sunsets and a new D300: A perfect wedding celebration

My brother-in-law got married last weekend, and Jeff and I made the trip to Clearwater, Fla., to celebrate Casey and Kristina’s big day.
