Planning a fall wedding? Think grand. Grand Canyon or Grand Teton National Park, maybe. Outdoor-loving couples -- and duos seeking a dramatic backdrop without a daunting florist bill -- are turning to national parks for ceremonies. "I do" locales range from Hawaii Volcanoes on the Big Island to Independence Park in downtown Philadelphia, says Carol Anthony, a spokeswoman for the National Park Service. Some parks issue fact sheets on locations, regulations and permit procedures. "There's a wedding almost every day at Shoshone Point," and there were 66 weddings elsewhere in the Grand Canyon so far this year, says Nan Stricklin, who issues the permits.

They say things like, “There are too many drunks running around Eaton as it is now.” I think differently. With a winery right here in the town of Eaton, people won’t have the urgency to go to Richmond or Dayton, just to find a pleasure in drinking. Instead it will become more of a natural thing. Nothing will be special of traveling to a big city to drink. Why? When you have a new wine source in your own small town. There are many benefits to the opening of this winery. I believe that since Eaton is a fairly small town, buyers will take their liquor home and drink safely at a house. This will limit the death rate from drunk driving accidents. Zdobinski and Meeks plan to have 14 different tastes, so the selection is a fair amount. With some grapes coming from California, this may take years to get a full up and running estate grown

The families always presented all their dishes as beautiful as possible (Elizabethan Marriages and Weddings Document), “The staple drink of the Elizabethans was ale, because water was unclean, but wine was also available and would have been ordered for the feast” (William Shakespeare info). The customs of an Elizabethan wedding were taken with care and made sure they were always done exactly right.
When Saturday came, I did not know I would feel confused or fell as out of place as I did. However, on the way to the church I figured this would be the typical wedding, where they would say their vows and the preacher would say “you may kiss the bride”, then I could make it home to watch the end of the buckeye’s game. Nevertheless, this is not how the wedding would go.
