As an Event Planner I have been involved with several weddings and I am often asked by my clients what they should spend their money on and what they can skip on or do without. My response is always that my clients need to decide what is important to them as I have learned over the years that no matter what the event the things of importance vary. One thing that I can say holds common is a GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER!! There are a lot of things that can go wrong, be forgotten, and ignored, but having terrible pictures of your special day can never be replaced, redone, or changed. Please also keep in mind this is not to say that you should spend a thousand dollars on a fantastic photographer either. There are amazing photographers out there!! Interview them, look at their work, check out their website/facebook page, ask for references, and MOST important make sure their style matches yours!! Every couple is different as is every photographer. Find someone you and your spouse click with because you want to be comfortable to share your intimate moments with them so that he/she may capture those on film! To me photograph can NEVER be replaced, changed, or altered and it captures the love and adoration within the bride and grooms eyes with which they can look back and even on the darkest day it can make them smile and remember the butterflies they had in their stomache once upon a time!

I am so pleased and honored that through Love is Bald , P3 was asked to face paint for the St. Baldrick’s Event on Saturday March 17th at Fibber McGee’s. My lovely volunteers and myself had a wonderful time and raised money too!
I can not even begin to explain the emotion that ran over me at the end of the day. First I have to tell you that 23 has always been my lucky number, and originally I was going to give 90% of my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s and just wanted enough to help offset some of my costs. As the day progressed and I saw some amazing men, women, children, those with scars who may have been ashamed, others who cried but gave up their hair to benefit others. When I see events like this it inspires me and makes me want to give back even more than ever before!! I decided to give all my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s with the original hope that I could donate $500.00. I counted my money and my total was $223.00. (Lucky Number) I immediately got cold chills and couldn’t hardly think. I turned my money in and we started to pack up only to come back to a table full of girls who wanted their faces painted. We unpacked our stuff and began to paint again adding within five minutes to our total another $20.00. Making it $243.00 for the day. Keep in mind that some people were giving us $20.00 bills. Thank you to everyone who can out and helped support such an amazing event!!
MUCH LOVE TO WILMINGTON!!!
