What We're Thankful For

We have so much to be thankful for this year! From each of us... FROM NEILLIE... There are so many things I am thankful for, it is hard to put just one thing.  However, I think life is what I am most thankful for this holiday season.  When I sat down to give this post some thought, I realized that I was diagnosed with cancer 17 years ago next week.  Wow!  That is a long time ago.  There are so many things that have happened since then.  What if the out come had been different?  There is No sense in living in the “what ifs.”  I am a big believer that each and every experience prepares you for the next.    Thank you Lord for the gift of life for my family, friends and brides.   Each and every one is unique and I am thankful for that!

This year has been a year of traveling.  I am so thankful for the Birmingham families who know us and trust us to deliver every detail of their wedding,  but I am equally thankful for the families who may or may not know us and have us plan weddings all over the world.  Whether it’s a wedding in the field of small town, out west on top of a beautiful mountain, or across a big blue ocean in a country that we have never dreamed of visiting- We are are eager to please and are thankful for the opportunities we are given each day.
