it is always good to hear how are guests are doing after they leave the Addison. We received a note from Gary and Lee yesterday. They live in Alaska and came all the way down to Florida last May to get married at the Addison. The Addison’s Elopement Package is definitely our most popular package for our guests. Lee tells me that they stopped in Washington State for their honeymoon on their way back to Alaska. They also sent a nice wedding poem attributed to Joseph Addison, a poet from the 1600s.

A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of friendship,
All the enjoyments of sense and reason,
And, indeed, all the sweets of life.
We had another couple get married last month and they were from equally far away as Alaska. Mark, the groom was originally from England and his daughters still live there. Some of the family came from as far away as California. It was a nice group who all stayed with us for several days and enjoyed the island. Their soon-to-be-born daughter will be named Amelia as Mark and Jenn met each other on Amelia Island. I guess it is a good thing they didn’t meet on Jeckyl Island.
