Totally fooled us. We had to do a double take on the signage that was modeled off of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

Some tips, Jen?

It’s very easy to spend countless hours finding inspiration and research. Stick to an idea that you like and go with it! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a nice looking wedding, but at the same time, remember, it’s the only time in your life you’ll probably have all of your loved ones and closest friends in the same room, all together. That feeling is priceless! Savor the moment!

Congrats double J!

Constantly verify out a visitor s center near your location. They usually have a lot of pamphlets on diverse attractions. A lot of these will even have coupons inside to get a discount. So not only will you locate items to do, but you can save cash even though you do them!
