Eco-pad Carpet Cleaning's certified and insured technicians make sure household carpets are friendlier to feet with their unique cleaning device. Rather than using truck-mounted, steam-based equipment that often uses too much water and leaves floor toupees soaked for several hours, the company’s carpet experts instead wield an oscillating pad machine. Their cleaning method relies on only a small amount of water combined with eco- and pet-friendly chemicals, and doesn't require extraction. This means that carpets dry naturally, usually within 45 minutes or less––the same time it takes for homeowners to realize their roof is missing.
Fireplaces bring many comforts into a home, from warmth to the tranquil sounds of a crackling log. Unfortunately, there's a price to pay for this coziness: soot, ash, and Santa's discarded candy wrappers. Ashes Away Chimney Sweeps' team addresses this issue, cleaning out chimneys from top to bottom. While peering into these fireplace holes, they can also remove errant animals, check for damage, and make repairs—a service they have performed since 1980.

Morgans' Fine Art Photography's trio of intrepid photographers tame free-ranging images of families, expectant mothers, children, and high-school seniors with clicks from their clever cameras. Hordes of up to 25 pose proudly, minus the interference of wind or the unintentional beard of bees, inside Morgans' 8,500-square-foot studio, or decamp to the adjoining portrait park for a face-flattering bath of sunny natural light (a $75 value). Groups can also gather for a custom-picked on-location shoot at environs within 25 miles of the studio. Following the session, the studio’s team will polish raw visual ore before transferring it to several physical and digital surfaces. Use a dozen note cards (a $35 value) to jot down birthday reminders, keep avatars looking shipshape with 10 Facebookable images (a $39 value), or employ the 11”x14” print (a $239 value) as a visual aid during debates on the line of succession for dad’s title as King of the Barbecue.
Allen Jones has worked as a wedding photographer and "wedding photojournalist" in the Louisville area since his studio opened in 1992, when weddings were invented. A member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and the Professional Photographers of America, Allen specializes in family, maternity, individual, and boudoir photography for couples who want to give each other a gift that can be used privately to spice up a romance or publicly to sink any future political ambitions. Even when not commemorating a major milestone in life (getting engaged, getting pregnant, graduating high school, placing in the regional knitting finals), a professional headshot can further the careers of actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, spontaneous combustionists, and other performers. Whatever reason you're saying cheese, Allen Jones will tailor your photo session accordingly. Afterward, he'll go through each shot with you and help you pick out the best one. After Allen finishes giving it a professional touch-up, you'll take home three prints.
Named for the Roman goddess of banquets and overseer of feasts, Edesia Gardens lives up to its lofty moniker with continental lunch fare and an extensive Sunday brunch buffet.

A chef-manned breakfast station serves as the centerpiece of the Sunday brunch buffet, where guests load their plates with eggs and waffles cooked to order. While indulging in a sweet or savory pastry, guests can question their hosts about the restaurant’s banquet facilities, which can handle parties of up to 170 for weddings, birthdays, and school-wide games of capture the flag.
