Bearer of Bad News

Well, not really....more like an "I told you so!"

Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce two months after marrying Kris Humphries in a $10 million wedding on August 20, 2011 and a mere 20 days after E! aired the Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event which has probably been replayed everyday until today.

The date of separation is listed as October 31, 2011 and Kim has enlisted powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser who has represented so many big celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears and Maria Shriver in their divorce cases. .

Speculation has been running rampant in the tabloids about tension in the relationship and a possible split.

The couple did have a prenuptial agreement which I'm assuming had a clause in there about splitting all the money that was made from the wedding since it was purely a publicity stunt.

It's sad to me that this family finds it more important to make money with various scandals rather then just being happy with themselves. It seems that it will always be something for the Kardashian clan to make headlines.

What will the next headline be?

Hello Beautiful!

Helping to support our community for a good cause.....

Hello Beautiful Color Salon & Art Spa hosted the 4th Annual Fantasy Hair, Fashion and Art Show that was held at Hula Bay on Wednesday, October 12, 2011. Also known as the Winter Wonderland which supported Toys for Tots.

Kudos to Nicole Santana with Hello Beautiful, she hosted a beautiful and very successful event. Every seat was filled, all the standing areas were full and people were squeezing in the balcony areas to get a glimpse at what Winter Wonderland had to offer. The Marines had to go call in another large van because there were so many presents being donated that night...Modern Day Events had the pleasure of being involved with this great charity.

Scites Photography was on hand to capture all the wonderful moments throughout the night:

Vendor Spotlight

Life's Highlights

As I was planning my wedding and creating my budget, I wasn't too sure about video. Yes, it would be great to have but was it necessary? However, my husband was adamant that we have a videographer at the wedding and I must say, he was right!

Your wedding day goes by so fast. You spend all this time planning and preparing and then it's over in the blink of an eye. You end up forgetting so many bits and pieces of the night because so many different things are going on. I wish I got to say hello to everyone but my husband and I split up throughout the night so we could thank everyone for coming out and celebrating with us! :)

A friend recommended that we use Scott & April with Life's Highlights. They were the sweetest couple and  very professional. They work with you on what you want and have a great sense of creativity.

When we received the highlight video, I was so happy we chose to get videography. I strongly recommend it. You want to look back and remember the things that happened on that night, all the people who were there, the little moments you missed and can look back on for the rest of your life and to share with your children. Life's Highlight's did an amazing job and I can't say enough good things about them. I absolutely loved them and the work that they did for us!

There are great videographers in the Tampa Bay area who do a fantastic job. Give them a call and consider it in your budget because it is definitely worth it!! :)
