Events are a celebration of life. A time to be present, in the moment, appreciating the beauty and importance of being together.  They are priceless moments we spend making memories with our friends and loves ones.  Whether it be a wedding; the shared celebration of two souls intertwined; a birthday, the celebration of life, happiness, and the preciousness of this world, or another event, coming together in celebration of life, all days are important, and all life should be celebrated.
