Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. It really is a "small world". When we are at a consult, meeting our new perspective couple, at least 8 out of ten times, it never fails that the couple will recognize someone they know from our books, portfolio's and products. If they don't recognize the bride or groom in a photo, they recognize one of the attendants in the bridal party. This happened at our very first consultation, and has been happening the past 5 almost 6 years. It makes for a warm, fuzzy feeling! Just as the song says..... It really is a small world after all!
