We would like to start by saying “Thank You” to Ric and Toi for everything. They were the most amazing hosts. Now I’ll back up a bit. It all started with a phone call in April, 2013. We were looking for a simple venue to have our small wedding ceremony. In a google moment, T&R Inn Between the Lakes came up. They didn’t advertise wedding ceremonies, but I took a chance and called anyway. I spoke with Ric and asked if we would be able to rent the property for a short time to have our wedding ceremony in September. Ric was very excited and said they’d talked about the possibility of hosting weddings and would love to meet and discuss the possibilities. From there, what took place was beyond our wildest dreams. Ric started with an idea of adding a gazebo for us to stand for the ceremony. From that idea emerged the most beautiful addition to their already beautiful deck and flower garden. Throughout the summer we were able to watch Ric’s vision come to life in the form of an additional pergola with running stream and pond surrounded by the most amazing rock walls and flower gardens.
Initially, we just wanted a place for the ceremony, maybe a couple of hours. What we ended up with was a beautiful weekend filled with family, friends, and fun. For a very reasonable price we chose to rent the B&B for the entire weekend. We invited our famly to join us and stay. We had our rehearsal Friday night and were able to bring flowers and decorations. We got up Saturday morning and were served a fabulous breakfast. We then moved into setup and decorating. Ric and Toi were there every step of the way to help set up and decorate . The ceremony was everything we hoped it would be and more. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting. Sunday was the added bonus because we were able to wake with our family, (and we were a big group). Toi and Ric served what seemed and endless fabulous breakfast. The food kept coming until everyone was full. (bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, pancakes, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee) It was the best ending to a most beautiful weekend.
Again, “Thank You” Ric and Toi for making our special day extraordinary!! There are not enough words to express what a wonderful weekend we had. We will definitely be back!
