It has been a busy September for Blue Lane! We have had the pleasure of helping some amazing couples with their weddings. All the weddings have been gorgeous, but very different from each other (which we love!). From an outside tented lawn wedding to a beach wedding, shoes optional. Here are a few highlights from the past week…(more photos to come!)
A special thanks to some of the amazing vendors we love working with!!

Happy weekend! With summer coming to an end, hopefully you have been able to sit and relax this summer with a great book. It’s our favorite beach activity…when we have time of course. Half the battle is finding that good read. Well, here are some great options for you. The first 5 are tried and true. I have read and loved every one of them. So that’s easy, right? The last 5 are on my list of must reads, including a biography which I admittedly do not read enough of. Amy Poehler…too easy! So grab a good book and get lost in it!
Top 10 Summer Picks 2015
Life can get pretty crazy, and sometimes we forget to reconnect with the ones we love the most. Bring the romance back into your relationship by planning a fun weekend together. It doesn’t have to be far away or break the bank…just reconnect! (Notice all of these are pretty much technology FREE!)
Camping for two
Or glamping, if your prefer! Pick a local nature reserve and grab your tent for a romantic outdoor weekend. Forget your watch and rely on nature to set your internal clocks. Take frequent naps, watch the stars, and make a romantic fireside meal for a memorable escape. This is where the cooking can get seriously creative (if you’re into that). We love…Hammonasset Beach State Park or Rocky Neck State Park or Burlingame State Park!
Visit the place you first met
Whether it’s near or far, plan a trip to visit the first spot you laid eyes on one another. Have dinner at a restaurant nearby and take a walk around this special place. If your meeting isn’t the most romantic, have fun with that too. Met in a dive bar? A night of pool and darts it is!
Overnight Boat Trip
From the Mississippi River to coastal waters, book an overnight trip aboard a chartered boat. Enjoy the calm waters, candlelit dinners, and escape from the ordinary. You’d be surprised what one night away can do.
If you can find one near you, an outdoor movie viewing is the perfect way to spend an evening. Blankets and fun food and drinks…just fun! Near CT? Mansfield Drive-In or Rustic Drive In, North Smithfield, RI
Forget the GPS
Fill the gas tank and strike out on an adventure with no destination in mind. This one is my favorite. It’s totally spontaneous with no itinerary or expectations of how the day will look. We spend everyday with schedules and planning so this is totally different! Explore the back roads, unknown restaurants, and unexpected treasures in your region. Bring along a camera — who knows what you’ll find. This is something the whole world needs to do…put down the technology!!!
Life is short so get out there!!
