Celebrating Love at Lookout Point: Not Long Enough!

June 15th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

Yesterday, Ray & I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary, and I am so grateful to this patient and good man for his kind and generous  spirit. Part of our anniversary traditions include expressing gratitude for our lives shared, and enjoying a nice bottle of red.

For years I’ve been interested to hear long-time married people tell the stories of creating a successful marriage. And now we are one of those “long-time” couples! I really don’t understand how it happened so quickly!

When my parents celebrated their 50th anniversary, I asked them the secret to their successful marriage. My mother said the typical answers: don’t go to bed mad, love each other, etc. My father bluntly replied: Do what SHE says! Of course, he promptly received the reaction he desired.

A few days ago, Lucian and Wanda

Wanda & Lucian (back), Tammy & James (foreground)

celebrated their 45th anniversary at Lookout Point. One morning they dined outdoors by the waterfalls, and shared conversation with James and Tammy, who will be married this fall at the inn. Lucian offered a great piece of advice to the upcoming groom. Whenever Lucian is asked how long he’s been married, he responds by looking lovingly & directly into Wanda’s eyes, and says “Not long enough!”

What a beautiful reply! It’s true: Ray & I have not been married long enough. Here’s to many more great decades together. And to all of you celebrating a June anniversary: congratulations!—Kristie

Small Weddings Save Big Money & Reduce Stress

March 4th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

Small, intimate weddings are growing in popularity for lots of really good reasons:

  • lots of money saved
  • reduces the stress of planning a major event
  • the bride and groom are surrounded by their very closest family and friends
  • time to focus on the marriage, instead of the wedding
  • a small destination wedding may become a fun family reunion!

On Leap Year Day, Jack & Michelle

Leap Year Wedding

exchanged vows in a lovely ceremony at the Anthony Chapel of the Garvan Gardens.  Immediate family from all over the U.S. gathered, enjoying time together.

Following the wedding, the wedding party returned to Lookout Point for photographs, the wedding reception, and wedding dinner (catered by Chef Eve). Jack’s twin sister Jill was also present—too funny (Jack & Jill)!

Michelle & Jack taught me something new: steam punk. What great guests!

Springtime is a beautiful time of year to be married in our gardens by the lake. Give us a call at 866.525.6155 to reserve your Hot Springs wedding!

Dressed in their wedding finery, Alicia and Michael decided to depart via Lookout Point’s canoe! It’s a bit tricky getting into a canoe while attired in wedding clothes, but this fun couple were determined, and no one got wet!

Just married!

Of course while out on the lake, Michael had to throw in a line.
