Our Current Portfolio

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it's been so long since the last post (seems to be a theme) but hopefully these will start coming out more frequently now that the wedding is over, the sun is setting sooner and I have more time on my hands.  Our wedding went absolutely beautifully!  August 16th was a reasonable 80 degrees with low humidity, the sun was shining and there wasn't a drop of rain in the forecast.  My wife looked stunning in her dress and we had the time of our lives!  We vacationed in Aruba for 8 days which was a wonderful island with great people however, we would not go back.  There was not much to do, especially after just going to Hawaii last year, but we both agreed that the relaxed nature of the trip was exactly what we needed.  We met a few other honeymooners on our trip who were fun to hangout with.  We did snorkeling, a sunset cruise and an ATV safari to the desert side of the island.  If you like crystal clear water with no waves, hanging out by the pool and drinking a lot, this island is for you.  However, if you like to hike, surf and do adventurous things, you would be better to go somewhere else.  This past month, we had 2 other weddings to attend which were a lot of fun as well!  How was your past couple months?  Fun? Tiring?

So without further adieu,
