CHRISTINE AND BILL'S WEDDING

August, 2009 in Keene

"We lucked out with weather - pouring rain the day before, sunny and warm for our wedding. Even though it was the weekend of Cheshire Fair we didn't have any problems with traffic, which was a concern for me (not having been in the area during the Fair previously).
We took the time to enter information into Wedding Mapper but found that our guests did not seem to use it - many people called with questions that were easily answered if they'd only looked at the map. We did include it on our wedding website as well as in our invitation insert, so it's not as though we didn't publish the site.
Plus, we realized it was likely most people did not have computer access once they got into town, since everyone was traveling from a distance.
Great service, but given how little feedback we received on it I can't judge it as being worthwhile or not."

"Christine did my hair, Betsy did my makeup - everything looked perfect! Other stylists did some of my bridesmaids/mom, they also did a wonderful job! And good prices considering what I would've had to pay to get my salon from Waltham, MA to travel to Keene for the day."

Ceremony:

Cathedral of the Pines

10 Hale Hill Rd
Rindge, NH, United States

"We had amazing weather, which makes all the difference. Staff were good, but a little confusing as to who we were working with. When I booked we worked with a person who left several months later. After that, anytime I called with questions I spoke to one person (Heidi, I believe) - but at rehearsal Heidi was not there, we had 2 different people, and at the actual ceremony there was only 1 person from rehearsal, and another person I'd never met before. So we worked with at least 5 different people from the time we booked until the ceremony happened. Considering what a small operation it is, this was a lot of people to keep track of."

Attraction:

Monadnock State Park

116 Poole Rd

"The hike to the top takes about 3 hours, but the view of all 6 New England states makes it well worth it. Even if you don't make it to the top, you'll (hopefully) get a good view of the summit from the wedding ceremony location. The thought of hiking this mountain frequently was one of the things that drew Christine to Keene. How many times did she hike it in four years, you ask? Once. And when she did, she was home in CT for the summer and drove to Keene for the day. Sheesh. :)"
