On the TV | Media Interview | July 1, 2016

I was asked by Courtney Curtis from TV7&4’s Up North Live to answer some questions about the hot-button point of whether or not to host your wedding as “unplugged” or not.  Truth be told, it was terrifying! I spend so many hours behind a camera that I totally forget what it is like to be IN FRONT of the camera.  I used the experience to remind myself how each of my clients feel at sessions.

The funniest part of the whole experience is Courtney reassuring my reservations about how I did with, “you did great, you’re all trendy and sounded fine”.  After she left, my Boyfriend’s 12 year old, Xander, says, “I think that lady was confused.  I think she meant crafty, not trendy.  Cause trendy really isn’t you”.  True that, kid, true that!

Pictures are moments that can last a lifetime but are there certain moments where the cameras need to be put away?

Thanks to technology, basically everyone has a camera at their disposal and – especially on someone’s big day – you want to capture those moments so you don’t forget them.

St. Mary’s Welding Project

Darin Fetter from North Shore Iron Works and TJ Carroll from TJ Design Studio hosted students from Leelanau St. Mary’s at Darin’s welding fabrication shop in Traverse City, as they begin the final stages of their art-sculpture project. The children have designed a metal art sculpture that will be constructed by Darin and erected on the school grounds. It was great to see the kids getting hands-on experience with grinders and welding tools. Each student received a small replica of their chosen design and were allowed to grind it smooth all on their own and use a press to bend the side supports. The final sculpture is set to be installed in May of this year.
