In May of this year 96-year-old Fred Stobaugh of Bartonville, Illinois lost his wife of 72 years, Lorraine. To cope with her loss, Stobaugh wrote a song called 'Sweet Lorraine' and entered it into Green Shoe Studio's singer-songwriter contest, with hopes that the song would be produced into a professional track. Green Shoe Studio was so moved by Stobaugh's story that they created a short documentary entitled, A Letter From Fred, 'a poignant and beautiful story of life, love, music, and the special place where all three come together'. 'Oh Sweet Lorraine' single is currently available on iTunes and Google Play.

76 Fabulous Ways to Make Your Wedding Unforgettable
The Wow Effect
When I was planning my wedding, I didn't need the most expensive dress or huge, elaborate floral centerpieces. I really just wanted a fun day surrounded by my closest family and friends in a beautiful location that was totally me and left my guests saying, "Wow! That was the best wedding EVER." At first I didn't think that was possible on my budget. I thought it took lots of money to come up with something unique and memorable. Fortunately for me…I was wrong.
What you don't know…and what the wedding industry doesn't tell you…is that you can have a day filled with personal, unique touches that really say something about you. And it doesn't have to cost a lot of money. The secret is what I call the "Wow Effect."
When your guests experience the Wow Effect at your wedding they won't just be impressed…they'll really "get" who you are and why you choose this wedding day, this location, this man. The Wow Effect is like a magic trick that casts a spell over your guests, transporting them to another world…your world…and makes them a part of it. Your guests are wowed when your wedding is a totally unique expression of you. The bonus is that when they "get" who you are, they become connected and involved…which means they have more FUN.
