Congratulations, Holly and Scott! Can’t wait for your wedding.

From sweet Luke Jackson, who is all of four years old: When we got home yesterday, Luke said, “That was the most awesomest picture day ever!” Can’t wait to see the pics!

Thanks to Sandy and Jeff Boykin for producing another wonderful Perfect Wedding Guide Show at the Baton Rouge River Center in July. It was a lot of fun to chat one-on-one with brides and watch them enjoy the festivities. And thanks to all the brides who stopped by the Ocken Photography booth!

Erin Foster (owner of A Stem Above) and Tony Olszewski tied the knot in Chicago in May 2008, and it was an awesome celebration from the beginning to end. The priest was a life-long friend and made the ceremony something to remember. The speeches brought tears to everyone’s eyes—especially the bride and groom! The cake was beautiful, and Erin and her team from A Stem Above rocked the house on the reception decor. It felt like there were 10,000 candles at the reception, and the flowers gave such life to the space, which was part of the old Marshall Field’s building downtown.

Working with Erin on weddings for the past few years has been a treat, and to be a part of her day was a special honor. Erin and Tony, we wish you all the best in all your adventures together as husband and wife!
