....yes! Two weeks ago Kiersten and I spent her birthday at a beautiful bed and breakfast near New Hope, PA. We had our own cottage at Woolverton Inn, complete with a small private garden just outside the doors from our room. The grounds were filled with arbors, cobblestone fountains, lazy pastures with sheep, and scenic views. After a wonderful dinner at Sargeantsville Inn, we returned to our room, lit the fireplace, and opened a bottle of wine we'd bought from a winery during a trip to Monticello when we first started dating. It was then that I popped the question....and Kiersten accepted! The next day we had lunch with Kiersten's parents, and dinner with mine, and everyone was very excited to hear the news. As we told friends over the next few days, we were surprised the everyone immediately asked all of the details of when the date was, where, type of ceremony - we haven't got to any of the details beyond the "we're engaged!" stage! So, last weekend we venturedto Barnes and Noble, bought a wedding planning book, and started to think about some details. This last week we've been looking at ideas for ceremony and reception sites, and visited a few this weekend.

We'd love to have an outdoor ceremony in Pennsylvania either in the Wyoming or Lehigh Valley area ...the type with a gazebo or arbor, a scenic backdrop....and a convenient nearby "plan B" indoor locale if the weather doesn't cooperate. We're planning on an indoor reception, and it doesn't have to be at the same site as the ceremony. For the reception site, we're looking for someplace with a little personality. If you've got any recommendations (either for outdoor sites or reception sites), I'm all ears!
