{making the wedding "industry" less industrial and more organic}

We are overjoyed to let you all know that we're now listed in the Vendor Directory at A Practical Wedding.  If you're not familiar with A Practical Wedding (APW), we strongly suggest that you head on over and check it out.  It's an amazing community of folks who are all about weddings that don't fall victim to all the trappings of the insanity that engulfs the planning process.  You can view our vendor listing here.

And the "APW Sanity Pledge" that we vow to uphold?  Pure genius.  Here it is:
All APW-approved vendors, agree that:

... A wedding is an awesome party, but it’s the marriage that really matters.

... It takes two people to get married. It’s not all about the bride (and sometimes there isn’t a bride to begin with).

... We support LGBTQ couples right to marry, and we are delighted to work with them.

... We don't charge a premium just because we heard the word "wedding."

... We will be upfront and fair about our pricing. We won't surprise you with a secret fee because you want frosting on the cake, not just the cake.

... You don't have to have cake at your wedding.

... However you decided to tie the knot, we’re on your team.

... Weddings come in all different shapes/sizes/colors/budgets/etc., but as long as you two end up married to each other, it will have been a successful wedding.

It's like Team Practical jumped into our brains...

We're excited to do our part to make the wedding "industry" a little less industrial and a lot more organic.

{Bad Bloggers}

We've been working hard on gorgeous weddings, updating the website (check it out - update is live now!), and a fun new project...  Hence our spotty blogging lately.  Promise we'll be back soon with a few real weddings and a couple of exciting announcements.  So, stay tuned! In the meantime, here's a little peek...
