Wedding Day 2013

December 15th, 2013 | Wedding Day!

I can hardly believe that the day is here, Courtney and Scott’s wedding day! Jackie Watson and all the incredible wedding vendors have been working so diligently over the past several months  to give this incredible gift to Courtney and Scott and today day is the day we all have been waiting for!

Silently, we all wished for snow for Courtney and Scott’s wedding day and the power of all those wishes have made it come true. It is gorgeous here at The Mountain Top Inn and Resort this morning. All the roads are covered with a fresh amount of snow, just enough snow to make everyone drive a bit slower and take their time on the roads. But that has not stopped the wedding team. It is just noon and all the tables are set, the centerpieces are placed, the videographer poised to capture it all. The room looks simply gorgeous! The ceremony location has been moved indoors as it is blustery cold out today and there is a chance of more snow. But I think that will be a plus for everyone, the new location for the ceremony is gorgeous, overlooking the snowy lake with the snowcapped mountains in the background and a gorgeously decorated arbor– truly a winter wonderland.

Back to work for me, I have to make sure all the remaining details are coming together. I will post photos as soon as we get the chance.



September 15th, 2013 | Meet Courtney and Scott!

On Sunday, September 15th, many of the participating vendors took the afternoon off from work to enjoy a gorgeous sail aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen on Lake Champlain to meet Courtney and Scott, the couple who won the 2013 A Salute to Our Soldiers contest!

Special thanks goes out to Lake Champlain Cruises for their support of A Salute to Our Soldiers!
