The End of the Countdown: The Rehearsal

Our big day started at our rehearsal. We rehearsed at the church, and then had dinner at the Exempt Club before we started decorating.

Before we decorated, we enjoyed train wrecks (IL's former restaurant's version of a garbage plate) with the family. We then decorated the Exempt Club and made it look better for the next day!

Island Time: Our Honeymoon

Well, 4 years later, and I have yet to post any recaps from our wedding and honeymoon. I'm not the best blogger- I always find something else I could be doing with my time (mostly nothing).

We spent our honeymoon in the 1000 Islands, about 3 hours away from home. We couldn't think of a better place to spend our honeymoon (well, we could....we just couldn't afford anywhere else). It is such a relaxing place, and in August, it is just beautiful. Lots to do, perfect weather, and overall just a great place.

My family had gone up to the 1000 Islands every summer for a few weeks for a good chunk of my childhood. I have many great memories from going up there, but hadn't gone since about 2000. A lot has changed, but there are still great things to do there.

We stayed for a week, spending a couple nights in a hotel that I had always wanted to stay at, and the rest of the week in a cottage on the water. We did fun things like exploring the towns (Cape Vincent, Clayton and Alex Bay), we went to Canada, went to Boldt Castle, and just relaxed.

I'm looking forward to sharing some of my favorite spots and some great things to do in the 1000 Islands!
