Whitlock Inn

Whitlock Inn

Sep 12

I’ll go ahead and spoil the ending of this entry for you. Remember how at Primrose, we loved the physical venue, but were a little wary about the service and amenities? Nothing game-breaking, just not quite sold on that side of things yet? Whitlock Inn is the opposite. Whitlock Inn was the second place we visited, actually right after Primrose Cottage on the same day. Located right off the...

There’s a funny thing about having 500 days from the proposal to the wedding… it’s a really long time. We’re already planning, with some frontrunners for the reception venue, but until we get anything a bit more concrete and interesting, I’ll regale you with the story of purchasing the ring.
