Capturing the wonderful memories made at a wedding is easy with the help of all of the talented photographers and videographers in our area. There is something, however, about the memories that are elicited through the sense of smell that we sometimes forget.


Wedding planner, Christina Petanovich of Obsessed Events, suggests brides splurge on a new perfume to wear on their wedding day. Then, every time a bride smells that fragrance, she returns to that special day. We love this idea for grooms too! What a great groom’s gift, bridal shower gift or simply a ‘you deserve it gift’ a bride can give herself.

Here are some amazing fragrances that just make scents!
