Out of the Office :: Arrivederci!

For the past 2 years, my husband and I have started a tradition in taking a mid summer vacation from work. After all, July 5th is our wedding anniversary, so it's only fitting, right?! July also comes right in the middle of our wedding season, so it allows me to take a nice break and recharge my batteries. This July will be by far the biggest vacation I've yet to take, as we'll be heading across the Atlantic to journey to Italy for 12 days! I am beyond thrilled, and also very blessed to be given the opportunity to take such an amazing vacation! 

Since I will be traveling internationally, I will have very limited access to email, and will not be checking voicemail until I return. I will be out of the office beginning Thursday, July 1st through Monday, July 12th. I will return to the office on Tuesday, July 13th.

I hope you all enjoy your 4th of July weekend! See you when we return!

The Forgotten Wedding Invitation

Last night I had dinner with the amazingly talented Leeann, owner of Leeann Marie Photography here in Pittsburgh. Naturally, we talked A LOT about weddings, and an interesting topic came up...the wedding invitation. Since the wedding invitation isn't part of the wedding day decor, more often than not any extras get thrown in a box and stored away for a rainy day (aka you end up with no photos of your invitation). To avoid this, we recommend mailing a completed invitation to your photographer a few weeks before the wedding, so he/she can take some high quality photos of your invitation. These photos can be a nice touch to showcase all of the little details you worked so hard on for the last 12+ months. Not to worry if you forget to mail out an invitation, just bring an invitation along with you on the day of the wedding, and you're all set!
