Real Wedding: Ashley and Joseph’s Multi-Ceremony Wedding

The first time Ashley and Joseph met was during dental school orientation. After years of friendship, they began to realize the feelings they had for each other were much more than just a friendship. During their last year as students, they began dating. With Ashley being Indian and Joseph Egyptian, they combined what was important to both of them for their wedding which featured a church ceremony and a Hindu ceremony. Both ceremonies were uniquely beautiful showcasing traditions that made their celebration a wonderful multicultural event.

Safe Kids Day Charity Event

We always love being apart of charity events especially when kids are involved! Recently, we had the opportunity to participate in the Safe Kids Day Charity at Smashbox Studios. Safe Kids Worldwide is a nonprofit organization working to protect kids on the move, at home and at play. Preventable injuries are the #1 killer of kids in the United States. Throughout the world, almost one million children die of an injury each year, and almost every one of these tragedies is preventable. Safe Kids works with an extensive network of more than 400 coalitions in the United States and with partners in more than 30 countries to reduce traffic injuries, drownings, falls, burns, poisonings and more. We helped our friends at Simply Troy with the design elements of fabrication, backdrops, floral and environmental designs. Take a look at all the fun while raising awareness for a great cause!
