The big weekend is here! We’re up at Howe Caverns tying the knot through Sunday, September 16. For those of you following this blog who aren’t guests, I’ve pre-scheduled posts from now through the end of our Honeymoon (and yes, … Continue reading
Any wedding is lots of work; large or small makes no difference. A destination wedding, though—one that’s pretty far from your hometown—I believe involves just a bit more work and organization. One of the biggest challenges for me over the … Continue reading
A few fun things have been added to the site in the past few days.
Howe Caverns Virtual Tour

Under the Galleries Tab, you can check out the Surprise Bridal Shower that took place on July 8, 2012, at Two Steps Downtown Grille in Danbury, CT here: http://journeytothecenteroftheearthwedding.com/galleries/surprise-bridal-shower-july-2012/ and a short video of the recent final planning weekend up at Howe Caverns here: http://journeytothecenteroftheearthwedding.com/galleries/final-planning-weekend-at-howe-caverns-august-2012/
Rock & Shell Contributors
This page is FINALLY up to date with everything we’ve received through August 21, 2012. Because of the massive amount of time it takes to put together the booklets for the program, they’ve gone to press (it has taken an average of two to three weeks to put together each chapbook piece that has been associated with this wedding). If you’d still like to contribute, please do! It’ll go up on this site, and I may have time to do an additional insert. You can see our collection to date here: http://journeytothecenteroftheearthwedding.com/rock-shell-contributors/

On March 21 it was seriously official: we got the contract from Howe Caverns, outlining everything we had discussed on our planning weekend. Nathan and I decided to celebrate the occasion as we looked everything over before signing on any … Continue reading
Howe Caverns’ underground “Bridal Altar” has been the site of many weddings—a guide when we visited in March of 2012 said 635, to be exact, but I’m sure that number increases with each passing month. The very first wedding in … Continue reading
Our 11th rock(s) are from Anne-Marie, our wedding coordinator up at Howe Caverns. We couldn’t have gotten luckier. She’s got loads of spunk and she cuts to the chase. Our wedding is just about all planned because of her. Our … Continue reading
When Nathan and I were kids, we weren’t allowed to buy lots of souvenirs. Now that we’re grown up, we usually don’t say no to ourselves—within reason, of course. Howe Caverns’ Gift Shop is amazing—something for everyone, and lots of … Continue reading
After we got back from our lunch in town, we took our comp tour of the Caverns—a special treat, since we’re not sure we’ll be able to do it on our wedding weekend (although we will certainly try; every time … Continue reading
