What’s in a (wedding) date?

There are certain dates that couples just have to have when planning their wedding.  Since the start of this millennium, each year has brought a new “hot” date like 10/10/10 or 11/11/11 for instance.  Though, this year, 2014, brings the last of the sequentially numbered dates for couples to fight over, 12/13/14.   What drives […]

Tuesday Tunes: You are The Best Thing

Ray LaMontagne is hands down a great artist.  His music just makes you happy.  That’s why we love “You are the Best Thing” as an first dance song.  This is one of those non traditional songs that you wouldn’t expect as a first dance but it just is so sweet and makes sense!  Listen to […]
