Yesterday I shared the story of our 10 year wedding renewal ceremony recently featured in Destination I DO magazine…Read on for more on the very colorful dinner celebration! Our original wedding as I like to call it now was lightyears away from this renewal celebration.  We did the big-party-invite-everyone-you-ever-knew thing.  It was a wonderful day and I don’t regret a bit of it.  When it came time to celebrate 10 years together, I knew it would be different.  Bold color, regional textures and flavors were the beginning.  The end was a joyous and very small celebration that made us all […]

This is where it all began.  My love for the west, redrock landscapes and the clear, crisp air of the desert landscape-it began with a painting.  Years ago, when the hubby and I took our first trip out west, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to go honestly.  He was thrilled at the prospect of seeing our nation but me?

The save the dates […]

Love this shot of Zion at night by Greg Gibson Yes, that is right, we have an anthem that encapsulates pretty much everything we vision for our #renewalinzion.  If you remember back to this post, where I suggested Destination Events have a mission statement, well,  having a theme song is along the same lines.  Destination events are costly for guests to attend and take a good deal of prior planning, SO it is your job to  motivate people to attend.  Let’s face it, the people on your guest list, love you, wish you the best BUT may not be feeling […]
