PattY1 - I guess casual is probably the proper word for it. Being a blue-collar guy, semi-formal for me means dockers, a tucked in button-up, and a sportcoat...
We're not religious, so the wedding and reception will both be at a single location. We've booked a large house with an upstairs ballroom that has windows on three sides and a stage for a local fiddle band we like. It's in a small rural New Hampshire town that (hopefully) will be filled with colored maples and white birch (we chose the peak foliage week).
So a small ceremony w/readings, big potluck, and some Irish/folk dancing.
We're going to start trying out cakes this week.
Pictures to come for sure!
