Heather and Damien
Welcome family! We are so excited to celebrate with you all this June! We thank you so much for holding a place for us in your lives; we know that we couldn't make this commitment to each other without the love and support we receive from each of you. Thank you. In our five years together we have filled our small cabin in the woods with all the kitchen supplies and musical equipment that a couple like us could ever need... and so instead of a more traditional registry, for those interested we have decided to outline our dreamy honeymoon plans below and we would be honored to have you contribute. Please keep in mind we will also be equally honored solely to have your presence at our celebration or your thoughts and prayers if you can't make it. On our honeymoon we will spend 9 days traveling by boat, bus, and train through the mountains and along the fjords of Norway before heading to Stockholm, Sweden for two nights. From Stockholm, we'll set sail on a cruise across the Baltic, where we'll get off in Tallinn, Estonia to meet up with some of the Estonian Roomets family and take in Estonia's International Song and Dance Festival! After, we'll board a bus bound for Riga, Latvia (the "Paris of the North," they claim), with perhaps a stop or two along the way at an Estonian beach town or an enchanted island. Finally after exploring Riga for our last couple of nights, we'll board a plane headed back home and back to reality....Tallinn, Estonia Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm, Sweden Bergen, Norway Oslo, Norway
