10 Incredible Years!

Impossible to believe that 10 years ago today, *February 21, 1998* I married the most 'outstanding' person in the world for me...Patrick! It has truly been the most incredible ten years of my life - filled with joy and laughter and of course blessed with two special little girls!!!

We all watched our 'wedding movie' tonight together...and it truly stands the test of time! It also really brought home to me that at the end of the day - through the dreaming and wishing and planning and agonizing and stressing about a wedding --- it really is all about the people that come together to celebrate this milestone occasion with you and the memories that they help you to create.

And more than ever, it makes you realize that the many, many details that were once so critically important fade over time...and all that you have left are the images and moments captured on film to help you remember them by. I have always been and will continue to be the biggest proponent of investing in the best professionals you can possibly afford to capture your wedding day...your most cherished memories are in their hands!

We were so very blessed to have had not one but three camera crews on hand for the entire 4-days of our 300+ person destination wedding 'extravaganza' - some of the most respected wedding professionals in the industry: wedding photography guru Andy Marcus of Fred Marcus Photography in NYC, Mitchell Sturat of HQ Productions who blew us away with video and John Unrue who shot over 2,500 black and white-only images on film [and took the image above]!

I feel today the same way I felt 10 years ago - like the luckiest girl in the whole world!!!! Happy Anniversary Sweetie!!!!

I understand how important this day is to you, your husband and your families.
During these times, it is more important than ever to nurture our marriages and lead our children (and our clients!!) by example.
Cheers to "10 Incredible Years," and to 10x10 more!!
