This could easily become a habit! One of my favorite things to do is to go on picnics! It is so much fun being outside and as my mom has always said, food *always* tastes better outside!
Michelle and her fiance, Jacob, want to have a wedding next May. Michelle wants to be married in the spring, and she was thinking the weather might cooperate by the end of May. They also have agreed that they don’t want a typical church wedding. Since they both love the outdoors, they have decided an outdoor wedding would suit them well. Of course, the problem that arises is where such a wedding can take place. There are venues such as Sonnenberg Gardens State Park in Canandaigua, but it comes with a hefty price tag. Also, Michelle and Jacob are thinking a more rustic setting is what they would like.
So….yesterday, Mark, Michelle, and I (Ben was working) set off for Letchworth State Park in Mount Morris. We met up with Jacob, his parents, and his two younger sisters to explore the various pavilions that Michelle and Jacob had scoped out previously.
This was the first (and only enclosed) pavilion we looked at. It is quite pretty. And here is the opposite end…
Since weather can be somewhat unpredictable in May, this might be a good venue as it is enclosed.
Michelle and Jacob really like this field as a choice as well. They were thinking that they could rent a party tent and set it up here. This is a beautiful setting and there is lots of parking nearby as well.
This pavilion was yet another choice. The problem here would be if it was rainy or chilly, it would present problems.
As we discussed the various areas, we saw why they liked the park. I only wish it was closer. It might be a bit challenging moving all the necessities there as well as food and decorations.
There are places closer to home that are nice, but there are issues of restrooms, parking, and size that present problems. Thankfully, Jacob’s dad is a minister, so he can do a wedding wherever they decide!
We stopped along the way and had a wonderful little picnic. It was a beautiful day and there really weren’t very many people in the park! It was so enjoyable. Our picnic table reminded me of the Flintstones!
We got home a little after nine-thirty and I think we all slept well! We did get some exercise, hiking about to look at the various buildings!
