Since neither family had much in the way of money, everyone realized the wedding would have to be modest, yet festive. It was agreed that it would be a church […]

When selecting a wedding gown, a bride normally chooses a design that appeals to her style: what she likes, what she doesn’t, how she wants her guests to see and remember her, how she wants to feel when she looks back at her photos from the day in 20, 30, even 40 years from now. […]

“Sometimes I feel like my own roots go way down in the earth,” said Harriet Charles, owner of South Gate Design and lover of all growing things.

As I approached my 40th birthday, my wife asked if I wanted a party to celebrate such a milestone. I explained that this birthday was no different than any other, so there was no reason to make a big deal of it. She shrugged her shoulders and said, “Okay.” Three weeks before my birthday, I’m […]
