Pie was served at Castaway on one of the last nights of Summer… the part of Summer when school hasn’t started yet and it’s still light pretty late. We can tell it’s winding down, though. That didn’t faze anyone at the wedding of Kate and Ian. The crowd was chock full of friends and family and I am always pleased to see people participating fully. When dinner was done, the ice cream was set out on a table full of pies… all sorts of pies. Initially, Kate had said she didn’t think they were going to do a “Pie Cutting” sort of thing but when the time came for dessert, Ian pulled her into a cutting… making sure to keep one of the hearts intact as he cut a piece to share. These two are perfect for each other!
On this lovely evening, my thanks to a Dream Team of vendors… it was such a smooth and classy event! I’d work with these talents again in a heartbeat.
And last, my friend, Steve Sharp served as the officiant… I met him a while back and have been waiting to work with him. Kind, patient and very real… just the sort of person you’d like to hand you into your married life.
Come see about me if you are planning a wedding… there is a lot to talk about. ;0)
There are some fine and wonderful florists in our fair city but I am always drawn to the art of Francoise Weeks. She seems to have an infinite connection to her own wide universe and a capacity for the translation of it. If you can give her an idea or two about what you like, she can bring intricate miracles to the table. All it takes is a little time and some trust in her many talents.
These two arrangements are enhanced a bit by the dirt under the fingernails of the older and the band-aid of the younger… still, charm abounds! I love flower girls!
Let me know if I can help you find the vendors of your dreams, ok?
What I like about meetings or doctor appointments is that I get to sit and look around with no agenda. Most times I take a book because the waiting room choices are usually just not my idea of a good time. But if I have a meeting like today where a camera isn’t too intrusive, it gives me a chance to stretch a little…. a chance to just watch a piece of a day go by.
The meeting was about wedding photography… it was about trying to pull in a segment of the client base who might not see us. It was about pooling a remarkable set of local talents in this very scary recession. We all want to work and we all need to balance our reputations against our mortgages just like everyone else. As a business owner you have to draw a fine line between profit and panic and that means finding a few shortcuts between what you know and what you know you can offer.
Keep an eye on this space …. there is a new deal coming soon.
