I wanted to share this video produced by LightMill that captured the wedding we designed in Washington CT. John is a Neurosurgeon and Tamara is finishing up to become a Dermatologist. Bothe met at Yale and have bought a splendid manor in the rolling hills of Litchfield County CT where this movie was filmed. Her father is a celebrity photographer in LA. You will note the accents, it is because they are from Croatia.

Walmart has installed TerraCycle Centers in a few of their stores in New Jersey. It's actually a brilliant idea and I'm very sure that it will be widely used. TerraCycle creates products from recycled material that is directly gathered from the consumer. Hopefully it will change the way we view garbage, everything has a value, that metallic juice box is raw material and worth something. If you are like me, you would not throw 2 cents into the garbage.

This BatMitzvah for a young woman who plays Hockey was held at a club in DC. We took some of her old equipment and painted theme gold to have them incased in Ice Sculptures. Word of advice, when proposing table top Ice Sculptures for a party, several things, one make sure the company does not place them more then 30 minutes before start time and make sure the Ballroom is on the cool side otherwise you will have premature melting. Second, and take it from me because it happened, if you are going to have Ice Sculptures on tables, do not take the company's word and allow them to place them on a small reservoir type stand. If your client has to have a Ice Sculpture, it has to be placed upon a reservoir with a drain tube, you will need to persuade her that she will need to by the linen because you will need to cut a small hole in the center to run a drainage tube into a 5 gallon bucket. I did not do this and was called during dinner to remove these slippery and heavy sculpture because the linens were soaked with melted ice. Not good, not good at all. But fortunately I kicked it into service mode and tried to remain as jovial as I could, thankfully my client was still pleased with everything.

The Cinematic Orchestra
I had no idea this song existed. This song was written and originally performed by Nina Simone in 1966. This take of the song is so wonderfully captured through the art of Calligraphy and I highly recommend that you open the video to full screen and capture this truly creative masterpiece.
And just to give proper credit to Lilac Wine's writer, here is Nina Simone
