Favorites of 2011: Photos

One of the best parts of the season is the feeling of a “fresh start” come January 1. That being said, 2011 was a FABULOUS year for the crew of DPNAK. Below are SOME of my favorite photos from the 2011 season. For simplicities sake, I limited it to my top six (in no particular order).

Ready? Go.

The first photo was from Amanda and Mark’s wedding¬†by Daniel Moyer. What I truly love about this photo is what you don’t see. First of all, this was the night of Hurricane Irene. Despite the odds, we managed to pull off a fantastic sparkler exit and it was great! Second, right before they were getting ready to exit, I realized I was in the shot […]

Real Wedding: Kristen and Ronnie – October 8, 2011 at the Woodlands Inn, Wilkes Barre

Now that the full speed ahead sign has been changed from a steady light to simply blinking, I am so excited to share my recap from Kristen and Ronnie’s wedding last month. (Last month?? How did I get so behind???)

Anyway, I met with Kristen and her awesome mom, Jeannette back in April. We talked for a while, got “shushed” by a group of people for chatting too loud (??), and I instantly fell in love. Since then, Jeannette and I would chat and share fun things on Facebook and I would look forward to every sweet email from Kristen. They are both truly magnificent women.

As for Kristen’s wedding day… the same awesomeness carried right through […]

Bridesmaids: When to give. When to demand.

Wrong.
Your bridesmaids (and this is including your maid/matron of honor) are your closest gal pals. You chose them to witness your wedding day and be “Team Bride”. With your decision to ask them came their decision to accept (hopefully). However, their confirmation does not enter them into a legal contract of what to do, how to do, and why to do without any if’s, and’s or butt’s. (tee-hee)

Real Wedding: Kristen and Ronnie, October 8, 2011 – Review

Dearest lovely followers, fans and readers… how are you?

My apologies for my absence this past week. Was doing some major prepping for a fab Greek wedding that went down this past weekend. Well, let me say, it went VERY well and it was a blast. And on this lovely Monday evening, I was so excited to receive a lovely review from my couple that got married two weekends ago on October 8th (or would that be considered last weekend?) at the Woodlands Inn in Wilkes Barre.

And without further ado…
Danielle was professional, curtious and extremely organized. My day ran so smoothly and I credit that due to Danielle’s services, she knew exactly wh […]
