Hello Family and Friends, Chris and I are very excited to begin planning our big day. We have decided that we are going to have a small intimate weekend where we can spend time with our loved ones and share this very special time with you all. Due to the fact we have family and friends all over the place it is important that we are able to communicate and get everyone involved whether you are near or far. We have decided on a Beach wedding as not only was this the place where Chris proposed but our favorite place is anywhere near the ocean. We understand that many of you will not be able to make it but if you can manage it we would LOVE to see you all there. You are all very important to us and want to celebrate our love and commitment with you all. Our plan is to rent a house in Lincoln City, OR and have a small ceremony and reception there. We are trying to get an idea of whether to rent BIG house where everyone can stay together OR have guests find their own accommodations. We are planning to head out on a Thursday have some bachelor/ bachelorette shenanigan's on Friday and have our wedding set for Sat. Lincoln City has a casino that may be a good venue for night life near the beach. Let us know what you think? We don't want this to be all about us but about bringing our families and friends together as we begin this great journey together.
