It’s Good Luck!

Everyone dreams for the perfect sunny day for their wedding, but unfortunately, booking a wedding date a year in advance leaves a lot of variables out of your control, including the weather. After a summer of gorgeous weekends, warm evenings and cloudless nights, Hurricane Irene chose this weekend to grace the northeast with her presence, […]
