Many brides moved away from traditional looks for more contemporary styles. However, the pearl is making a comeback. This season pearls are expected to start appearing more and more, but not just in jewelry. Backlaces instead of necklaces, decor, flowers,...

Men don't dress up very often, but when they do, what all goes into it? Do you know the difference between lapels and collars?

The table numbers can be bold or subtle, but they can be a great way to bring a little bit of your personality into your decor,...

One of Centre County's newest Wedding Venues is impressing brides and their families. Sometimes a venue may be perfect, but it takes more than a view and a pretty building to make a good venue - the staff and management play a big role. Nice to see a review that gives some praise to the hard workers. Short but sweet good review for the staff at Above the Valley Special Event Center
