Ladies and...Well, More Ladies, I think We Have a Winner


Presenting, the almost-certain site of Nuptials 08. It is a gazebo, which is obvious, in Massachusetts in Look Park, which is not as obvious. We really like this location and think it will be beautiful in the fall. Plus it is covered, so should the weather be inclement, we will have cover. There are little seats along the inside for Madeline and Avery to not sit on.

Making a semi-decision makes it all seem semi-real.

Also, discussions of the after party, to be held in November, have started. We have a couple of ideas floating around. To be honest, I was a little shocked that Nicole wanted to go all-out. Well, not all out, but she presented a budget much bigger than I intended. Seriously, I was picturing something way laid back. One thing I really want to include is having a photographer set up to take portraits. Like when you are on a cruise ship. With the right lighting and right set up and right camera, most of the pictures will come out great. I love the idea of collecting family and friends portraits! Plus they might like it too. I also wanted one of those old-fashioned photo boots, but that might be pushing the picture angle too far.

Pictured above, El Gazebo. Also pictured, Madeline and Avery practicing snacking (on raisons and cranberries) on benches in the park. The park in our neighborhood, that is.

Oh, that looks lovely. I can imagine how gorgeous it would be in the autumn particularly.

I've noticed in the last few posts that the girls are looking so old! That sounds like an insult, but they are definitely so...toddlerish! Adorable, as always of course.

Looks beautiful! I grew up in the Boston area, but when I visited my grandparents in Springfield, they sometimes took us grandkids to Look Park. I loved it! Congrats on finding a place. Once that's done the planning can really begin. Yay!

It looks perfect! I love the whole gazebo thing. And I bet in the fall it will be full of color and beauty.
