Not sure what a wedding consultant actually do? Here are some clues and educational advice from a couple that recently hired a wedding coordinator when having an wedding in the south Pacific.

We had our wedding in Jamaica, says Martin and Anne. When having a wedding abroad, it’s very important with a consultant helping understand the local customs. They can cope with an unpredictable environment, help with all the logistical details while managing the budget.

When you arrive they are there to meet you. They inform you about the status of the wedding cake and all other vendors that might or might not be ready with their tasks. A professional wedding consultant always have a back-up plan when something goes wrong. We used the team at Legal Tahitian Wedding to sort out everything we couldn’t handle ourselves. They took care of all the nitty-gritty details you cannot manage yourself. When running out of ideas, they are also very creative. The coordinators from Legal Tahitian Wedding made arrangements with wedding customs and made sure that all guests knew what’s going on. They set-up a plan for rehearsals before the ceremony and do all other important steps in the most important day of your life. We could highly recommend them if you’re heading to Tahiti or another island in the south pacific.

For Students studying Photography there are some tips and tricks that you won’t learn through your university or college but through experience and we have devised a few tips for wedding photographers who are looking for that extra edge in their images.

Family photos can be a very chaotic moment in your job as you don’t really know who’s who and everyone is wondering all over the place so the best thing to do is to co-ordinate the family to avoid any stress of missing someone in the photo. Also be loud and affirmative as everyone will be talking so you need to make sure everyone hears what your saying to again avoid missing someone out of the picture.

It is always a good idea to visit the location before the day of the wedding to get a good idea of where you can get the best shots. Also take some test shots to get an idea.

Lastly look for the fine details of the wedding such as the wedding rings and the holding of hands these can make for great pictures.

“It certainly made me more driven to reach my goals in life,” Anderson, 53, of Richmond, said of her bout with cancer. “I love my job; I love where I work. I was very fortunate that the VA offers this program.”

Anderson was referring to a program in which the VA continues to pay its employees’ salaries as well as their education outlay while they are pursuing college degrees. In switch over, employee-students agree to carry on functioning for the VA for at least three years after they graduate.

She earned her master’s degree last December, but sought to hold off on compliant it until spring so her 88-year-old father and her mother could watch her march in cap and gown with the May 12 graduation procession at St. Joseph’s.

The University of Texas of the Permian Basin will be the first university in Texas to offer a $10,000 four-year degree program.

The Texas Science Scholar Program was approved at the University of Texas System Board of Regents meeting in Austin on Wednesday. The program will offer a four-year degree program costing $10,000 in the areas of geology, chemistry, computer science, information systems and math. The reduced price in tuition would save future students an annual amount of almost $4,000 per year.

Paul Feit, department chair and mathematics program coordinator at UTPB, said he sees the program as an experiment. He said he expects the first year to primarily impact local students and possibly in future years could bring in students from other areas in the state.

“At my end it’s getting new faces in the classroom,” Feit said. “If it works, it will be a tremendous shot in the arm in many ways.”

The new program could go into effect in the fall, with criteria of maintaining full-time status and a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average. Students have to apply for the program through the university and will receive the discounted tuition cost only if accepted.

And while one plan approved a lower tuition cost for students, UTPB officials have also proposed a tuition increase, which could increase undergraduate tuition 2.57 percent annually for the 2012 school year and another 2.6 percent in the 2013 school year.
The reason UTPB is able to offer the program lies mainly in the recent addition of the university’s $54 million Science and Technology building.

Fannin said that since the completion of the math and science building in the fall, UTPB has a higher capacity for students. He said the campus has a capacity for 5,000 to 6,000 students but there are currently about 4,000 students and a lot of empty seats in classrooms, which could be filled without a major expense to UTPB.

“The opportunity has opened up. Why wait four or five years?” Fannin said.

And while the university does not have a set goal of added enrollment in mind, Fannin said, there could be an instance in the future where classroom capacity is met in certain programs and that would put a limit on the program’s availability.
