full_0412_f1_8(NewsUSA) – Sponsored News – Some moments are simply too important to trust to a camera phone.

Your wedding will be one of the most memorable times of your life, and no one can capture it better than a professional photographer. So how do you find the right one? As you interview photographers, ask them these questions to help you determine if he or she is the right photographer for you.

  1. Do you have a portfolio I can review?

Reviewing sample work allows you to see the photographer’s style. Is it more formal or candid? Look for images you can see yourself in. Think of three words that describe you and share those with your photographer. Continue reading

20 WEDDING ETIQUETTE QUESTIONS, ANSWERED BY PROS

What should you do if you don’t want to be a bridesmaid? What if you RSVPed yes to a wedding, and now you can’t make it? As a bride, are you required to give everyone a plus-one? Do you have to send handwritten thank-you notes, and how long do you have to do it? Clearly, attending—and throwing—a wedding doesn’t come without a million and one questions, many of which can veer into sticky, awkward, potentially friendship-ruining territory.

We talked to two pros—international etiquette expert Sharon Schweitzer, author and founder of Protocol & Etiquette Worldwide, and Michael Cerbelli, CEO and president of New York City wedding and event planning firm Cerbelli Creative, who worked on Billy Joel and Sir Paul McCartney’s weddings—to get their insight on the most fraught and sensitive wedding-related situations.

The New Rules of Wedding Etiquette

Shap2In the world of wedding hashtags, up-to-the-minute status updates and tweets, we bring you the most common social-media-related wedding faux pas—and discuss what to do instead. (You’re welcome.)

By Simone Hill

 

If You’re Planning Your Wedding

Call your parents before pressing “post” or “tweet” to announce your engagement.
Your close friends and family will want to hear it straight from you first.
A Facebook status or tweet might be the most efficient way to get the news out, but it’s not the most personal. You know which friends and family members would appreciate to hear the news directly from you. Plus, it’s likely that older family members (like your grandparents) don’t have Facebook or Snapchat accounts and could miss the message altogether. Continue reading

New England venues help plan and host your perfect wedding or reunion

Promises have been made and friends have been phoned. Now it is time to plan your wedding or other celebration, from family reunion to welcome-home party. When choosing a wedding venue the first step is the couple’s taste. Will this be a traditional, formal gathering at a Maine or Connecticut waterfront resort? A casual party at a converted barn or public gardens in Vermont or New Hampshire? Wedding vows on a yacht off the Massachusetts coast or in a hot air balloon above the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island? New England’s resorts, hotels, inns and other wedding venues are ready with the wedding planning expertise.

New England venues for wedding and celebrations can help you plan every detail: rehearsal dinners; lodgings for guests; buffet or sit-down dining in a ballroom or on a patio; exchange of vows in a garden or a chapel; and all the many other wedding details: music, food, flowers, photography, and on and on. They can find you a justice of the peace or offer the amenities for a quiet elopement, like wedding license, accommodations, an intimate dinner, flowers, and wine. They can help you plan your wedding budget.

The most fun of all this is imagining the glorious settings that New England can offer: an Oceanside resort in Martha’s Vineyard; a historic inn or high-rise luxury hotel in Boston; a storybook country setting in Litchfield, Connecticut, or the majestic mountains of New Hampshire. Plenty of options are listed at the link below. Find a location that stirs your heart and contact these wedding planning experts. They know what you need and how to make it happen. We work with many of the outside venues, hotels, parks and historical sites in Down East Maine, New Hampshire and Northern Mass. Producing elegant tenting, staging, flooring, tables and chairs along with outstanding assortments of table settings and linen supply. We can help direct you personally to the perfect out door wedding venue(s) for that special event.

Thanks from The Granite State Quest

Dear Ashley, 

Two weeks ago, over 100 riders took to the roads of southern New Hampshire to participate in the 8th annual Granite State Quest – A ride to conquer cancer.  I am pleased to report that it was a wonder and successful day.  You may recall that July 10th was during one of those hot spells, not to be confused with the hot weather of the past few days.  In addition to the heat, there were some pretty good rain storms throughout the day.  Thanks to Exeter Rent – All with its generous donation of 3 tents the riders were able to find shade or get out of the rain when they circled back to Timberland after each of the 3 loops they rode throughout the seacoast.  Without the tents, our post ride barbeque for riders, volunteers, friends and family would not have been as enjoyable, as the rain returned on a few occasions during the celebration. 

Exeter Rent- All has been a wonderful supporter every year and thanks to your in kind donation and that of other local business, we are thankful and proud that 100% of the funds raised by the riders go directly to pediatric cancer research and patient care at The Massachusetts General Hospital.  Our fund raising efforts thus far have totaled $75,137 and we are hopeful to reach $100,000 which will result in an eight year total of over three quarters of a million dollars.

Thanks again and please extend our appreciation to the entire Exeter Rent-All team. 

Bruce Taylor
Co-Founder – The Granite State Quest
