As you’re reading this Nathan and I are on our way up to Howe Caverns to finalize some plans for the wedding.
We’ll be staying at the on-property hotel, and our schedule’s pretty full. We’ll be finalizing reception plans with Howe Caverns’ Anne-Marie and Joanne, cake-tasting (Nathan can’t wait) at the Villa Italia bakery, and meeting our Officiant.

We’re excited to finalize…and we’re excited to have a little bit of down-time. I think there is no Wi-Fi!
We’ll be back in town this weekend.
