WUW has Meaning!

is making a strong difference in many lives by being the 
World's 1st Non-profit wedding wish granting organization!!

Read about why Wish Upon a Wedding is important! 

Article Written by: Laura T. Coffey, featured on the Today Show!

Time: Shelly Sundstrom knew she didn’t have much of it. Days, hours, minutes were slipping away — but Sundstrom knew what she wanted to do. 

She wanted to marry Jay Ellison. And he wanted to marry her.
But when? And, more problematically, how? Neither of them had the stamina to plan a wedding. Shelly, 48, had advanced lymphoma, and her doctors had given her mere weeks to live. Jay, also 48, had serious health issues of his own; he had been battling multiple sclerosis for years.

A friend of the Seattle couple placed a call to Wish Upon a Wedding, a new charity that grants weddings and vow renewals to people diagnosed as having fewer than five years to live. Volunteers with the charity blasted into action — and three weeks later, 
Shelly was walking down the aisle and exchanging wedding vows with Jay. Read More!

Wish Upon A Wedding has been creating non-profit organizations nation wide!

Now our very own state of NJ has one too!!

D.I.Y Tip: Invitations!

DIY TIP: Invitations!

When doing invitations for a wedding or event you need the correct tools to get the job done. Find a good paper cutter it will make the difference between a clean invitation and a homemade invitation. Know the paper sizes and do a trial or two on regular computer paper first and always order extra cardstock or invitation paper! 

Lastly, have fun, make it personal and take lots of pictures!! 

Happy DIYing!

Shoot Me Chic Photography

As a Wedding & Event Planner, I want the best of the best for my clients! Having excellent vendors that compliment my style and my clients style is crucial to a successful Wedding or Event! I asked the owner, Tiffany Lowe of Shoot Me Chic Photography a few questions so you as my client can get to know their style a little better!

Today I Introduce to you, not for the first time, but as one of the Best out there... 

1. How long have you been a Photographer?
I've been a professional photographer for 1 year and a half.

2. What's your Photography Style?
I like candid shots. I actually despise the traditional 'Sears' poses.
Catching people off guard tends to convey a natural look.

3. What do you like most about being a Photographer?
Being able to be as creative as I want is the most rewarding aspect of photography. 

 4. What's some of your favorite Wedding Shots to capture?
My favorite shots overall are couples. There's something about capturing natural love.

5. What makes you/ your company stand out from the rest?
Shoot Me Chic is a professional photography company that will NOT break your pockets. We offer professional pictures for people on a budget. Most photographers in the PA/NJ/DE area charge $2500-$3000 to shoot weddings/receptions, we are a budget friendly company willing to work with our clients.

6. Anything else you would like to share about your company!
I'm probably thee MOST energetic photographer you'll ever meet...FUN FUN FUN : )
