how travel is an event >> a planner's perspective

So, I am known to my friends and family as a world traveler, jet setter, you name it. One of my friends is convinced that I won the lottery and pretend to have a job, but really just travel. Gosh, I wish that were true! I do love to travel and although I do travel quite a bit, I would love to travel even more.

Mike + Lindsay: an intimate affair

On a sunny October day, Mike and Lindsay wed at the Lodge at Little Seneca Creek surrounded by their closest friends and family. Lindsay planned everything out, designed and hand-crafted many of the decorations to have the wedding of her dreams.

The night ended with dancing, corn hole, beer pong, and flip cup; it was quite the party!
