Bentonville Bridal Fair-Plumlee's Win Trip!

On February 17, Larry and Lajunta participated in a bridal fair held in Bentonville, AR. Vendors from NW Arkansas, SW Missouri, and NE Oklahoma were in attendance.
Vendors were asked to submit samples of their wedding products for judging, called the Designer Wedding Challenge. Judging was from those in attendance, including the future brides and their friends and family. There were divisions for Floral, Tablescape, Stationery, Cinematography, and Photography. There were 21 photos entered in the photography division. One of Larry's entries was the winning entry! Lajunta and Larry at their booth.

The prize was a 5 day, 4 night Mexican Getaway vacation! The Plumlee's have their choice of going to one of 4 locations in Mexico: Cancun, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, or Mazatlan.
Above is the entry by Larry that was picked as the top wedding photo in the show. Photo was taken at College of the Ozarks, Keeter Center, at the wedding of Joel and Callie Dolloff. The winning photo will be part of the Fall/Winter issue of Weddings With Style Intl Magazine's feature article on the Designer Wedding Challenge.

We Dodged A Weather Bullet

The worst of this week's ice storm went to our north. There were no power outages in our area that I knew of.

It was very beautiful Tuesday morning when we came to work. The roads were clear, but the foliage looked like a crystal wonderland.

This photo was taken in our yard at the studio.

I also had a professional polaroid "ID" camera for taking instant passport photos.
