Come on out early for a program that promises to be interesting and informative.

From 6 to 9 pm:
Rae and Wesley Leytham photographed their 1st wedding for $250 as a favor for a friend, not knowing it would lead to a business that would change their lives forever.

Topics to be covered include:
- Surviving a business with small children
- What inspires them the most
- Techniques & philosophies that made their business successful
- Lessons they learned the hard way
- How to make unappealing locations look amazing
They will also share photos from private weddings that have never been seen by the public and show how they work together at events to achieve their success.
