Hi LilyRose--thanks for the warm welcome!
I am from Burlington, VT. Where in Ca are you from? MTL is very close, so I visit there often.
I am very excited about the concept of having a small, intimate wedding so hopefully that won't be too much of a problem I know what you mean about cost. We were initially going to do a Feb. wedding, but had to push it out to help lower costs for our guests. We have locked in April 14th as our wedding date. I have spoken with Karolin a few times regarding questions and details and she has been great! I think we know most of the details--now it will be a matter of locking them in once we determine how many people can attend. We are planning on sending our save the dates out by the end of next month. We are still in the process of trying to determine a location and details for the AHR--ugh.
Jade Mountain looks beautiful! We are hoping to stay there on our wedding night. You'll have to share all of the exciting details once you are married
