Sadly, Sara was not around when I was getting married. But the good news is that she's around to design my baby shower invites! When I found her work, I fell in love and was so sad that I was already married. But once I found out I was pregnant - she was the gal I called up to do my baby shower invites. Sara was so understanding when I even had to change my invite "theme". She gave me some suggestions and ideas and made it work.

Thomas Fogarty Winery
I had my wedding here in April 2006. It could not have been more beautiful. The venue is definitely more pricey than some others but you can get around it by having it off season, on a Friday or Sunday. You have to buy their wines which are nice and you can sell back any wines that were not opened. We bought 3 cases of red wine and 3 cases of white. We ended up selling 3 cases back and was refunded some money. This was nice! They include the chairs and tables (both round and recatangle) and you can have dinner inside or outside on the deck. There are a lot of different options to go with. The ladies that are in charge of events are responsive and very helpful. I could not have asked for more of a beautiful place! Other notes: You will have to choose from their preferred list of Caterers and DJ's. The caterer's range in price but I found that Schumann's Four Seasons and Melons Catering to be the most affordable (off their list). If you have your wedding here - you will have no regrets!

Professional Makeup Artistry
Maria and her crew are incredible. They stay with you until after the ceremony to touch you up and help with photos. Maria has an assistant who does everything! They helped steam my dress, taped me to my dress so I wouldn't fall out and took care of my 4 Bridesmaids, mom and 3 Jr. Bridesmaid without a hitch. They were so much fun to have around and made getting readly stress free. Maria is worth every penny you pay.

Dream A Little Dream Events
Kathryn from Dream A Little Dream Events was my DOC for my wedding in April 2006. My FI now husband gawked and resisted the idea of a DOC but I managed to convince him it was worth it (meaning my sanity). After the wedding he said it was the best money he spent. No stress for us and our families and friends were able to have fun and enjoy themselves. This was very important to us. Having Kathry and Noreen there was priceless. They helped me set up all of my DIY things, my wish table, my pictures and they packed up our car with gifts. My family and I did not need to lift a finger! It was so nice to be oblivious about the things that went wrong. I'm sure that things did - but having Kathryn there meant I could be blissfully ignorant and believe until this day my wedding went off without a hitch!
