Managing other’s expectations when planning your wedding

Recently I was invited to participate in an article for Virginia Bride Magazine regarding a popular topic; managing expectations.  Our team will spend months working very closely with our clients during the course of their engagement and we often see the stress and pressures that is put on them regarding their wedding and the decisions surrounding it. Before I share the article I want to say that I am a strong believer in being true to you, and yourselves as a couple when planning a wedding.  I definitely think it’s important to be respectful of your families and their wishes...

Gatsby Glamour

Maybe it’s the feathers and glitz, maybe it’s the fancy-free attitude that everyone seemed to have, but the roaring 20′s have always held a prized spot in our hearts. When we learned that the Cavalier on the Hill was going to be out of commission for remodeling there was no question that the As You Wish team had to jump on the opportunity to get in there one last time.
