Cottage by the Lake.
David and I have confirmed a cottage on Newfound Lake for our wedding weekend. It will hopefully serve a few purposes.
♥ We'd like to have a space to gather the OOT guests Friday evening to welcome them to the area, answer any questions they have about the region and give them their OOT totes. This time would be campfire and s'mores time. Maybe some sparklers! (I ♥ sparklers!)
♥ We'd also like someplace romantic to escape to after our reception, midnight dip in the lake?, and have a quiet place to relax on our wedding night.
♥ Also, on Sunday, we'd like to give the opportunity to all guests to get together and celebrate some more, if they choose. Initially we had anticipated organizing a hike up Mt. Cardigan, but having a cottage on the lake now, we can invite folks over to swim, play frisbee and BYO-BBQ!
I'm really looking forward to the whole weekend. The further we come along with confirming vendors and purchasing essentials the more it seems real! I guess we can't elope anymore. ;)
