heartfelt moment A
We’ve had several weddings at my company this year—among them, my son Richard Canning to his new bride Aubin Canning. My fondest memory of that day was our mother-son dance. In the fleeting moments that we danced together, I saw my son mature from a fearless toddler—protecting his older sister from a park bully—to a strong, intelligent adult capable of defending and providing a safe haven for his own family someday. As young couples embark on their journey together, their wedding is often the hallmark of their union as one. In the pages of this year’s Wedding Guide, local wedding professionals and consultants offer their seasoned advice—from budgets and venues, to suits, hair and makeup. Their recommendations come from a place of experience and understanding. They offer words of encouragement and often provide cautionary tips on how to keep your wedding day moving along smoothly. Don’t hesitate to use their expertise to make this extraordinary day a memorable one for you and guests alike. I’m thankful to have played an integral part in my son’s wedding celebration and I’m happy to share a sprinkling of Richard and Aubin’s photos to complement an article or two. Our shared memories (both good and bad) will be a topic of conversation at family gatherings and reunions for many years to come. May your wedding day be filled with many fond memories, photos and stories that you revisit and cherish for a lifetime.
