TIPS FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM:
"Don't cut corners by hiring a cheap photographer! In the end, the images are all that you'll have left of the big day. I'd also recommend hiring a videographer—they will catch moments you missed and will cherish forever."
CHERISHED WEDDING MEMORY:
To end her wedding reception, Sarah and her husband gathered all of the guests in a circle to sing John Denver's "Country Roads." Since they were all from West Virginia, it created a wonderful memory for all her friends and family.
ON DESIGNING HER OWN WEDDING INVITATIONS:
"I designed my invitations to set the tone for the entire event. I picked a theme and color palette early and carried it throughout all the details. A complete, cohesive look really makes an impact."
