Turn Your Wedding Into A Time Of Giving

    Why not make your wedding a time for reaching out to others in need, a time for giving and sharing. It is so easy to get lost in one’s own needs that finding ways to think of others can actually make your wedding planning less stressful! Here are a few ideas with you:     For those couples who have everything, ask your guests to donate to one (or several) of your or their favorite charities. At there is a Wedding Registry, replete with an on line form and search engine to help even the most internet-challenged decide which, of over 850,000 charities to choose from!

The celebration started Friday afternoon with a tortuous four hour ride up to Boston on the Mass Pike - it seemed like everyone had decided to take Friday off, enjoy the weekend and see the stunning Fall foliage. The planned Welcome Party at The Hotel Indigo was extended to accommodate guests arriving late.  Our hosts, Jill and Mark graciously welcomed each guest with a gift bag that set the tone and spirit of the weekend. Early Saturday morning everyone, attired in Cornell colors, headed to the Harvard Stadium, in Cambridge, for a tailgate breakfast under a huge covered tent.  The Ceremony began outside, with the Cornell Marching Band playing Processional music.  Of course, the Bride wore white and the Groom wore black.... Cornell sweatshirts that is.  The Officiant presided over the Cer
