Finally, WELCOME!!!

We have been trying to get this site sent out to everybody now for the past two months. It becomes quite a hassle when your internet connection does not work for over a month at your home (thanks comcast.) As the intro says, my and Lynns' special day will be on October 8, 2005 at Adagio in Blue Mtn. Beach, Fl. Before you go running to the calander Bama fans, it is an off week for football. Auburn fans (I know there are some of you out there) don't have anything to worry about either, unless you can find a way to lose without playing a game. My LSU Tigers play Vandy which I consider an off week, but we do have a new coach, so you never know.

The time for the wedding on that Saturday has not been settled upon, but we think it will be around 5:00 pm, CST. For those of you not familiar with Blue Mtn. Beach, neither was I. It is a beautiful place about 15 miles east of Destin and is very easy to get to. No high rise condos or traffic jammed highways......just a beach, some old beach houses, a fair share of palm trees, and a few four or five story condominiums like the one where the event will take place.

If you haven't heard of Adagio, thats because it is brand new. As this post is being written, the builders are putting the finishing touches on the huge center pool and the last units. The units at Adagio are spacious 2,000 to 2,500 square foot 3 and 4 bedroom condos. They are all equipped with oversized balconies, stainless steel appliances, fireplaces, and beautiful interiors. Sound expensive? It is.....if you want to buy one.

Our plan is to go down on the Sunday before the wedding and have a nice relaxing week, while putting the wedding together a piece at a time, and not trying to do it all in a matter of hours. For anyone that is interested, we would love to have as many friends and family stay there for all or at least part of the week. Realistically, we know it is unlikely that everyone will get to come, but for those of you that think it is a possibilty, here is some info you will find useful:
Adagio has offered us a deal where anyone who is attending the wedding can rent a condo with a 25% discount. The following prices are based on splitting the cost of a condo three ways for a three bedroom, and four ways for a four bedroom:

A three bedroom, pool front unit would be $62.44 per bedroom, per night. A four bedroom gulf front room would be $72.84 per bedroom per night. That price includes taxes and cleaning fee according to my Certified Public Accountant wife to be. If you stay two nights or less, there is a $150.00 cleaning fee (so in other words, you might as well stay three).

That is probably enough info for the first post. Check back regularly as I will update this site as more plans are made. Wow.....weddings take a lot of planning. I told Lynn to tell me what to wear and what time to be there, but she wouldn't go for that. Anyway, thanks for reading. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at

Gracias, and hasta luego!
