Earlier this year, I posted about Jacki and her battle with Melanoma … and her REMISSION!!!  {God has blessed us}

In an effort to help us with this cause, Lori Hagen, owner of The Melting Pot has been gracious enough to host, not one, but TWO events for Jacki Allen’s Melanoma Awareness Program.

Style Me Pretty Feature … April 6, 2010

We are BLUSHING … red rosy cheeks and all …

Remember our POST from a few days back in regards to Andy Jackson with Portal Films???  Well, that stunning short film of our lovely couple {Regan and Micheal} is being featured today on Style Me Pretty!!!

Style Me Pretty – Kentucky Wedding by Portal Films

Jacki and I couldn’t be more excited or thrilled for how happy Regan and Micheal were about their wedding! We feel that their true emotion for each other, their journey and their glorious wedding day couldn’t be put in a better format than what Portal Films has shown in this short film.  Seriously, you will need your tissues … {I still get teary eyed and I’ve seen the film a hundred times}.

Please go on over to Style Me Pretty and check it out

As a side note, but just as important, we are honored to have been chosen to be a Little Black Book Member for the second year in a row {2009, 2010 and counting}.
