Wedding Day Schedule of Events

First of all, we'd like to give a big THANKS to all who helped us gather the many rocks and build rings for the fire pits.
Much work, and much, much fun later when it was done.
You guys are the best!

Now, on to the the wedding day. Below is a photo of the meadow that you will be directed to off Hackadam Road in West Haven. There will be three signs (symbols) to follow - one on Route 22A North at Main Road, one at Hackadam Road and the final at the entrance to the meadow.
The meadow you will enter will look like this and be filled with cars.
This is where you will park.

After parking, there will be a horse drawn wagon to bring you from the first meadow, through the second meadow and on to the third, where the event will be held. There will be a screened room to wait in if the wagon is en route when you arrive. For those of you camping, we request you start arriving as early as 12:00 to set up your tents, etc. and be ready for the ceremony at 2:00. The wagon will be there and ready to transport you and your belongings. For those not camping, you to need to allow an extra 20 minutes (only 10 if you want to walk the 1/2 mile out to the meadow) to the travel time.
The ceremony will start at 2:00 with the sound of bagpipes in the second meadow.
At that point you will be directed out of the wedding tent to the central circle where the ceremony will be held. Susan Farrow will be our officiate, and will guide you where to sit and stand. The ceremony itself should take no more that 15 or 20 minutes, and then back to the tent for toasting, feasting and merriment.

So, to recap:

12:00 - 1:50 Guests arrive, set up tents if camping, and gather in the wedding tent.
2:00 - 2:15 Ceremony
2:30 Party!

Any questions at all, please contact

The countdown is on!
