Nighttime Weddings: Six Things to Remember to End the Big Night

When my parents got married, there was only one way to send the couple off–with handfuls of hard rice thrown up in the air. It was a nice party atmosphere–kind of an edible confetti–and it served happy couples on their big day for a long, long time. Now there are so many other ways to … Read More

Flowers of the Day: Succulents and Roses

I am a HUGE fan of succulents, and we have a lot of them in pots at the inn. I like their dusty colors, the huge variety of leaves, and the fact that they don’t need water. Which means that they generally live, even in the Florida sunshine. We hosted a wedding this weekend where … Read More

Night Weddings: Ooohs and Aaahs for Our New Lighting

I can’t decide whether I prefer daytime weddings, when the inn looks so crisp against the Florida sky, or nighttime weddings, when romantic lighting lights up the architectural details of our buildings.

Your Fairy “Tail” Wedding

And they call it “puppy love”! I saw this blog today in the Huffington Post, asking whether dogs should be included in wedding ceremonies. We’ve had several pups-of-honor during our weddings at the inn–as long as the couple doesn’t want to tie the rings to the dog’s collar (it’s my job to worry about what … Read More

Say Cheese! Five Tips to Look Great in Wedding Photos

There are those people who love getting their picture taken. I see them on Top Model–lifting a shoulder, smiling with their eyes, finding their light. Some of them are pretty, and some of them are “interesting” as Tyra says. Some have big ears, a gap between their teeth, a masculine jaw. It’s not that they’re … Read More
