Determining Your Wedding Budget

Click here to check out a post by our very own Debra Harris of Visions by Debra on In this post, "Determining Your Wedding Budget", Debra stresses the importance of figuring out how much you plan to spend on your wedding day. "The first order of business after my initial meeting with a bride is to divvy up her budget to meet her wedding needs. It also assists with the selection of vendors as I know exactly what my couple can spend and saves time as we are not interviewing persons whom are not affordable."-Debra Harris, Visions by Debra

Amanda & Bryan: The Photographer Featured Wedding: Amanda & Bryan

Amanda and Bryan hired Elizabeth Thompson Photography to photograph their wedding day. "This wedding was incredible! The bride was gorgeous. Her gown was amazing and her veil complimented it perfectly. You could feel the love this couple has for each other. The Immaculate Conception Chapel is just beautiful and the reception at Riverwood Mansion went off without a hitch. Beyond all the beautiful touches and pouring of love between the bride and groom, were two families that were celebrating their union. The joining of families is always spoken, but these families truly embraced one another. It was great to be a part of such a beautiful day! Thank you Amanda and Bryan for choosing me to capture your wedding memories!" -Elizabeth Thompson, Elizabeth Thompson Photography

Congrats Wedding Giveaway Winners!

Congratulations to Cameron & Kimberly, the 2012 Q Wedding Giveaway Winners!!

"It seems like most of my life has been filled with nothing but challenges. Ever since I was a teenager, I always said that real love would never find me and that I would never get married. I just figured that I wasn’t good enough for that type of love and commitment. I just kind of drifted through life, looking for love in all of the wrong places, and lowering my expectations each time it didn’t work out. All of that changed 3 ½ years ago when I met Cameron. He has taught me that I am beautiful, intelligent, and very deserving of love. We have been through so many challenges together in these past three years, from the births of our sons to immediate moves to job losses, and yet we have overcome each obstacle that has been thrown in our path together. We have two very handsome, headstrong boys together and recently decided that it was time to take our relationship to the next level. One of our boys has some developmental challenges that take up a lot of time and money for therapies and other resources necessary to help him. Since I am a full time student-mom and Cameron is a temporary factory worker, our budget for a wedding is very tight. I have a very simple dream but I would love for Cameron to see his dream of a real wedding come true. I know that on our own that dream is not possible, but with this contest, anything could happen. So please help me make this dream come true for the best person that ever came into my life when I needed him the most." -Kimberly

Cameron and Kimberly won the prestigious Q Wedding Giveaway Prize Package, which includes:

*Wedding Bands from McKenzie & Smiley Jewelers
*Wedding Gown & Bridesmaids Dresses from The Bride's Boutique
*Flowers from Sango Village Florist
*Ceremony Videography from Turning Point Productions
*First Night Bliss Package from True Bliss Event Design & Coordinating
*A Tux for the Groom & Best Man from Gent's Formal Wear
*Linens from Clarksville Linen Rental
*Wedding Cake from Covered with Icing
*and more!
