One of the appeals our clients have to The Perry House is that so much natural beauty abounds the property, from the house itself to the views, gardens, and its rich history, that they don’t feel a need to add much more (which of course helps the pocketbook). But a little “extra” help of just the right touches never hurts, Read more

Have Fun with the Details, Make Your Wedding Day Your Own

Lorna & Chris were probably our most creative couple of 2012, and not one bit afraid of making sure their special day represented them!

A Ceremony Gone “Fun”

Okay, this is not a typical blog for us, but we also want to be about sharing fun and different ideas for your special events, and this wedding ceremony video will certainly do that. It’s probably an idea you hadn’t even thought of. Maybe you’ll think it’s not proper or wonder how they could “treat” this important day like this; but sometimes, not always of course, but sometimes something out of the ordinary and non-traditional is just the way to start a new life together. And notice from the faces and laughter of the guests, they loved it — which is what happens when you do something people aren’t expecting. Watch it and enjoy and consider… would you maybe want to step back from the pomp and circumstance of it all, embrace the moment and see what it feels like to do something out of the ordinary? Food for thought… or at least for FUN!
