I felt like Secret Squirrel the day that these two got engaged. I stood, waiting for them to meander their way down to the waterfall feature of Beau Jardin. Impatient. Honestly, so impatient and ready for things to happen. I was worried that he had changed his mind, that they had gone somewhere else or […]

Valerie and Terry found themselves in our quaint town of Natchitoches. They had been planning to go elsewhere to get married, but with scary medical events just barely in the past, they thought “if not now, when?” and made the drive from Grand Prairie, Texas to Natchitoches.

I have been a major fan of 17hats since I signed up with them in 2015. This program has completely changed everything for me. Once you get your templates for contracts, emails and questionnaires loaded, all you have to do is plug and play. You can have it as automated as you’d like, sending emails […]
