Maine Squeeze: More preparations

10 February 2011

First, contrary to last week’s post, I realized that I do have a few photos from our first few days on-Island!

So, here’s some of our stuff on the ferry ride:

Here we are loading things into the truck (John is looking mighty intense):

Here my Dad and I are working on signs (Dad modeling his working shoes, grandma doing the heavy looking-on):

Feel more in the loop now? :)

On Sunday morning, Kim, Kate, and Cormac arrived. Yay! The gang was finally all together! The next few days were mostly just spent enjoying each others’ company — playing tennis, taking walks, eating on the deck, jumping off the dock, picking berries, playing cards, going out in the boats. Pretty much perfect. We did, however, tackle a few wedding-related tasks in between leisure activities.

On Sunday, we decided on the perfect spot for the ceremony:

Caption: Should we have the vows in this stunning waterfront location, or this one?

On Tuesday, we took the boat into town for Kate’s hair trial:

Cormac’s family also arrived on Tuesday, so we all had dinner together at our cottage:

On Wednesday, we assembled welcome bags for guests:

We included a map hand-drawn by my best friend, granola bars, water bottles, pretzels, salt water taffy, driving directions, and an itinerary for the weekend. Kim was our official bow-snipper.

Wednesday night we headed to Five Islands for lobster:

And returned in the early evening.

That’s all for today! Up next: we raise the tent, and hang lots of bunting!

All photos are personal, except for the two middle welcome bag photos, which were taken by Meredith and Jenna.

It begins

    Is your boat a Boston Whaler? We have a 1980 BW that sits 6….it's such a fun boat :)

    Yes! We actually have two Boston Whalers, one bigger than the other. They ARE so fun, and even I can drive and dock them! :)

    This looks lovely! So fun and summery. Very jealous of that boat. Love the stripey ribbon on the gift bags too!
