The culinary artisans at Phuket Thai Restaurant sling a menu of Thai cuisine and sushi rolls as colorful as the eatery's yellow and red walls. Coconut milk–infused curries and noodle dishes share plate real estate with house specialties such as roasted duck curry and spicy catfish, as well as more than 25 sushi rolls packed with fresh seafood and vegetables. Steaming pans also sizzle gluten-free and vegetarian entrees, and chefs gladly accommodate requests for varying levels of spice and sentience. Asian artwork dots the walls throughout the dining room, lending to an overall vibe of soothing east-Asian calm.
A striped awning shelters guests as they step inside The Village Salon's blue entrance room, which functions both as a reception area and an art gallery. Amid the salon proper's subdued gray walls and rustic wooden accents, a staff of experienced stylists under the direction of new management consults with customers before crafting flattering 'dos using products by Matrix, Moroccanoil, and Pureology. Meanwhile, aesthetic specialists administer purifying, age-erasing facials and meticulously cover nails with CND Shellac polish. The Village Salon also offers gift cards and packages for special occasions, such as bridal parties preparing for a wedding, couples celebrating an anniversary, or estranged clones attempting to reunite.

As a child, CeCe looked forward to her family’s summertime trips to North Carolina, where she could reconnect with faraway relatives over cookouts. One of her fondest memories from this time is making homemade blackberry ice cream with her Grandma Ruby. Years later, CeCe would look back on these days with nostalgia; she dreamt of opening a business that would bring families together over a tasty summertime treat.
in 2008, her dream became a reality with the opening of Sweet CeCe’s Frozen Yogurt & Treats. Like wig salesmen to the Constitutional Convention, families flocked to the self-serve frozen-yogurt shop, where they could create their own desserts from dozens of yogurt flavors and toppings. The small shop got so popular that CeCe franchised the business. Today, families in 11 states can create sweet memories within the sherbet-colored walls of a Sweet CeCe’s.
Meghan, the photographer at m.newsom photography, understands that a photo shoot doesn't just amount to a few pictures; it's a full experience in itself.

Afterward, clients can choose from keepsakes that go far beyond the typical prints and digital images, including 12"x24" wood canvas prints and high-quality hardcover wedding albums.
