Hello Pretty People! I have the deepest apologies to all of you for totally flaking on my blog for the last few months. As I believe (most) of you know Future Hubs proposed way back in August, 2010. We always intended to have a long engagement (so we’re right on track) with a goal of an Autumn 2013 wedding.
Needless to say I’ve spent the last 2 year stalking wedding blogs, drooling over pictures and fictitiously planning the ideal day for the two of us. Flash forward to December 2012 when we realized 2013 was knocking at the door reminding us we had 10 months until “W” day.
Late December and January turned into a frantic search for venues, dragging my groom as well as good friends all over the greater Hudson Valley area in search of “The One”. I can now calmly and happily say we’ve found it. (Right when we were ready to give up hope and elope, funny how that works.)
More details to come on that as most of our family doesn’t even know. To any family reading this we are still waiting on a final date and once that happens we will let you all know.
I plan to make a few posts about the venues we’ve seen for those brides in the NY/NJ/CT area who, like me, don’t want the typical catering hall, dinner/dancing wedding. I’ve found a handful of places after what could potentially be hundreds of hours of research that are comparable to all the Oregon/California/Washington weddings us East Coasters drool over.
Early apologies to anyone who could care less about wedding anything. This has unfortunately been my life for the last 2 and a half months and really living in a diverse area as greater NYC it shouldn’t have been this hard. I truly hope my reviews help any bride stuck in the same boat I was. Plus, bonus, most sites I visited are county and state parks so it won’t be all wedding banter. so if you like the great outdoors and Mama Nature yay!
