SAMUEL DOCKER

“Intimate weddings have always been chic—even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Joy Proctor, who designed Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s intimate wedding in the South of France. And we couldn’t agree more—small weddings, no matter how petite, are weddings nonetheless; well-deserving of attention to detail, jaw-dropping fashion moments, and a stellar guest experience.

With couples postponing and rethinking their wedding plans for 2020 and 2021 with fresh priorities, safety, and national and international regulations in mind, celebrations have inherently become smaller, more intimate—and, if we’re being honest, more intentional and personal than ever before. A common misconception is that a small weddings mean less effort, curation, and elevation. Quite the contrary; a wedding is a wedding, regardless of size, scope, and location—and smaller guest counts make it possible to get even more creative.

Whether your celebration takes place in the backyard at home or far

During his tenure, Griffin continued and expanded the storied institution’s focus on interdisciplinarity and oversaw a program featuring Chantal Akerman, ANOHNI, Charles Atlas, Gretchen Bender, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Ralph Lemon, Aki Sasamoto, and Tyshawn Sorey, among others. His term also led to new initiatives including the hybrid talks series “The Kitchen L.A.B.” and electronic music series “Synth Nights.” Griffin—who began helming the nonprofit in 2011 after a seven-year run as the editor-in-chief of Artforum, where he is currently a contributing editor—will shift into an advisory role at The Kitchen by year’s end; he has accepted a visiting professorship in the art history and English departments at Ohio State University in Columbus, where his wife, Johanna Burton, directs The Wexner Center for the Arts.

Denver family’s sewer leak to be repaired after damage

DENVER — For weeks, a Denver family has been out of their home, getting the runaround and wondering how they are going to pay for thousands of dollars in damage.

They reached out to Contact Denver7, and they are already getting results.

At Kelsie Shippy’s Washington Park Bungalow, something stinks, and it’s not just the sewer link in her basement.

“Sept 13, we noticed a leak in our basement,” said Shippy. “We’ve haven’t been able to live at home for the last three weeks because of this leak. We had to shut off the water.”

Three weeks ago, without warning, she says crews installed a utility vault (box) right next to her house, directly over a sewer line.

“This is a letter from a plumber,” she said, showing a statement from a plumbing company that shows the plumber thought something went wrong when crews dug the hole for the vault.

How to Choose a Home Remodeling Contractor

So you’re ready to put in a new bathtub, or you finally picked out that new tile for your kitchen. If you don’t want to do the work yourself, or you don’t have the time or skills to tackle a DIY home improvement project, hiring a contractor is the way to go. But choosing a home improvement contractor can be a headache: How can you tell if someone is good at a job you don’t know how to do?

When you choose a contractor, you’re hiring a new employee for a job. You wouldn’t hire the first applicant for a job at your business, so don’t choose your home improvement contractor without narrowing down the best candidates. Examine portfolios of previous work, check licensing, listen to referrals and gather competitive bids before you make a final decision.

When the pandemic-related stay-at-home orders went into effect in March, we lost a part of our income. But our spending dropped, too, so we didn’t feel the need to worry about our finances at first. 

We thought the loss of some of our income was temporary and that things would get back to normal much sooner than they have. But of course, that hasn’t proven to be true. Luckily, we’ve been able to keep our grocery spending in check. In fact, we have found that we spend the same amount on groceries as we did pre-COVID, although we are now eating three meals a day, seven days a week at
