Definition of Experience

Wedding

We found this quote and feel it really captures our message:

 

“[Experience] is a matter of sensibility and intuition, of seeing, and hearing the significant thing, of paying attention at the right moments, of understanding and coordinating. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.Aldous Huxley

Even MORE brides in the Magazines!

Another of our brides, Anne Stover and her new husband Andrew Ruder, made it into Chicago Social Brides! We had a great time traveling with them to their Ludington, Michigan wedding. The couple was married in a gorgeous small church and had a beautiful barn reception. Anne and Andrew’s wedding photograph featured on page 356 in the “Hitched in Chicago” section of the Spring 2013 issue! I just love how many photos we are getting into magazines for our newest friends! (we posted the photo in color and full crop) Enjoy.
