Here’s the story of the last few days before our wedding.
Our rehearsal dinner was a casual lobster bake held at Abbott’s in Noank, CT.
I spent the morning of our wedding at the Steamboat Inn in Mystic, CT.
Our ceremony was held at the United States Coast Guard Memorial Chapel in New London, CT (more about our venue choice). I wrote four posts explaining individual elements: communion, vows, music, and readings.
Our cocktail hour immediately followed our ceremony on the Sea Porch of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
Our reception was held under a tent in the Sunken Garden of the O’Neill. Here are the details on our tent layout, here’s the marriage certificate I made for our guests to sign, and here’s more about why we chose this spot.
Here is our budget breakdown.
2.5 years later, we ordered a wedding album.
It was all very marvelous.
