A very musical couples finds love and matrimony at the Philadelphia International Music Festival

Turns out, newly married life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. I think that initial euphoria is wearing off ... and the work is piling up.

Weddings, for as much as they are about brides and grooms, are about mothers and daughters.

The stress of planning a wedding and an engagement story

The problem with planning a wedding is this: The rest of your life doesn't stop. My status right now on Facebook is "I am very, VERY thankful for - and completely overwhelmed by - all the good things in my life." I have never been so busy.

Nobody sings a love song like a cowboy, Part II

I was driving through Buena today at full speed, listening to one of the three country-music stations on my presets, and it occurred to me that I left off some pretty key songs yesterday.

The run-up to the ring - and the start of the real work

Some little girls grow up dreaming about their weddings. I once went to a $700,000 wedding in Boston where everyone spent the whole weekend talking about how the bride and her mother started a wedding binder when she was 3.
