it really is a treat to work with the people we do. we work with wedding planners a lot, and we love it. especially after you get to work with one over and over again and that rapport is established. dickie morris is one of those people. dickie and i go way back, even before our days of wedding industry domination. dickie was the first person i met at college orientation at uva, and i'm lucky to say that we kept in touch over the years, and then got to work together, her planning events for easton events and me helping out with invitations for her clients. dickie's good people, and you just hope you can be like her one day. in addition to planning fabulous events, she keeps a blog on the side. after especially hectic days, i like to check out her blog to get a reality check. should you, too, need a momentary breather, i highly recommend stopping by justalittleditty.
once you have an ad in the local paper, you're legit. well, in our opinion anyway. the way we see it, any joe schmo can blog. i mean, hey, look at us! but when you see your name in print, well, that's when you know you've made it. and that was the case when c-ville weekly's twice-a-year insert "unions" came out. unions focuses on, you guessed it, weddings. and there, front and center on page 23, keeping company with our friends the C & O Restaurant (probably good press' favorite restaurant in all of town) was good press' very own ad. we were pleased as punch and picked up a gazillion copies to send to friends and family. which might derail the whole point of advertising, but oh well. we just can't help it. if you don't live in town, or if we run out of unions to send out, here's the ad itself so you can see what all the fuss is about.
