David Ottenstein of New Haven has some nice examples of wedding photos; but he charges between $2,700 and $3,700 which is far beyond our budget, but then again, he claims to shoot somewhere between 500 and 750 pictures, which is much more than average. David White will charge us $1,500 all expenses included (i.e., ca. 200 prints, negatives, and 8 hours of his time). Need to call Michael Doolittle back. He had proposed $1,400 package (including negatives).

Per Katy, Michael Doolittle knows Alice, and has done photography at SML. Per Google search on "(203) 562-1752": 119 Everit St, New Haven, CT 06511

Here's an example of a winery which allows you to set up your own private label. Chateau Chantal is located in Traverse City, Michigan, and was found in the Wine Spectator database. But here's the one recommended by Ben and Sarah: Windsor Vineyards. Order placed online 3/29/04, Confirmation Number is 2175215.

Colony Hotel is probably most sensible place to stay in New Haven. They offer "Yale-related" rates for $89.00 Single Occupancy. $99.00 Double Occupancy"
