The conversion technicians of MediaGo2 cast many spells of computer wizardry that turn various media forms into digital discs. Birthday parties, high school–graduations, or anniversaries trapped on degenerating tapes can be transmogrified into a DVD, playable on any standard device. Even memories stored on older methods, such as 8mm tape and family portraits on preserved cave walls can be scanned, digitized, and burned onto a brand new disc. Beyond full-motion video, MediaGo2 technicians can convert 35mm slides and photographs into both playable and JPEG formats.
The fabric-cleaning aficionados at Coles Cleaners take on challenges ranging from wine-stained wedding dresses to soiled rugs. The professionals boast certification in environmentally friendly cleaning, which they have earned through an assiduous commitment to using chemical-free cleaners and refusing to take Mother Nature's name in vain. In addition to making suits, shirts, and suede clothing sparkle, the team can also take the ill out of ill-fitting garments with tailoring and alterations.
The team of professional planters from Prestige Landscapes specializes in fruit trees, giving owners access to fresh produce while promoting green communities. For each installation, the team evaluates the plot in advance and brings along a generous helping of fresh, carbon dioxide-rich soil that nurtures the young sapling and protects its modesty by covering exposed roots. Clients can choose from more than two dozen species—divided among the categories of apple, pear, peach, apricot, and cherry—each chosen for its ability to blossom without pesticides, self-pollinate, and thrive in cooler weather. As a testament to the staff's arboreal acumen, the company guarantees that each tree will flourish and bear fruit within one year of planting.
John and Veronica understand how momentous each wedding day is.
