June 18. 1966

Backyard Reception

49 years of matrimony

As early as I can remember, I liked to color.  Crayons, markers, pencils, paint…it really didn’t matter. Little did I know my talent for “staying inside the lines” would take me on a journey filled with colorful people and places….

My career has taken me to a bullfight in Mexico, and the jungles of Costa Rica. Through a traveling band of circus carnies….and a pool of friendly dolphins.. I’ve seen Red Carpets in Cannes…and the Runways of New York City. There have been countless TV sets…and even a Broadway stage.  

And there have been brides…many, many Brides.just like you…I bring my professional experience and editorial hand, and combine it with your day of vision and personal style…to create a look you Love.  I believe you should look back at your photos and Love the way you look.  I believe that Timeless will always trump TrendyAnd I believe you should look like the Best version of Yourself....Always
