Engaged & Wedding Planning

On Christmas Eve Sean & I got engaged (read engagement story). Celebrating with family and friends was wonderful. It was really special to be able to take the time to enjoy our engagement, the holiday and start of the new year.


Come January the planning began, we created our spreadsheets, put together a guest list, brainstormed ideas and began the hunt for a wedding venue. The venue is the most exciting, yet most difficult decision to make. It’s where your whole day takes place. It sets the tone for your wedding and once your select your venue visualizing your day becomes real and the rest of the planning starts to fall into place.

With so many amazing Massachusetts wedding venues to choose from we knew we had to first discuss our season, theme and style before deciding. Our dream would be a spring, rustic and intimate wedding day. Some of the MA wedding reception sites we are considering are Harrington Farm, Red Lion Inn, Smith Barn, Rivermill in Dover NH. We have our tours booked and are excited to see these beautiful venues. Stay tuned!
