Give it all away, but for a good cause. That's what Miriam and Jake, two of my wedding clients from this past November did for their wedding. In lieu of gifts, they asked each of their guests to make a donation to the Save Darfur Coalition and raised $22,000 in the process! Kudos to the both of them for their commitment and unselfish generosity to such a worthwhile cause.
Check out the story in the Savannah Morning News right here. You can "meet" them in their TV interview right here. It's truly an honor and privilege to be in this business and have the opportunity to meet and work with people like Miriam and Jake. Hopefully each of you have such an experience. You can check out a very cool selection of their wedding images right here too.
