You –  as individuals, as a couple and as two families coming together… and to help you express that story to the […]

Rehearsal Dinner Drama….

One of the more challenging areas of wedding planning is the dreaded ‘Rehearsal Dinner’ Brides and Grooms often dread it because it is one major area they may have to really ‘let go’ – it may be the one big piece the Groom’s family is planning (or traditionally contributing to). Then it becomes the question […]

The Truth About Thanksgiving …

  by Mark Kingsdorf, MBC This year’s Thanksgiving is extremely challenging for me, I’ve become a little over analytical in light of the over commercialization of Black Friday morphing into Thanksgiving Day and maybe a little cynical. The original meaning of Thanksgiving, as an American holiday, was to celebrate the harvest and working together as community […]

It’s my turn!

 by Karen Peterkin, PBC I've got three sisters.  In birth order I'm second born.  In height I'm the shortest. I hate shopping, especially clothes shopping.  I kind of dislike spending money in general, but I think the main thing is that I get overwhelmed with choices and how best to use my money. I love […]
