Ooh la la! I'm bowing down to this couple from afar.
Priced out of the insane NYC housing market, they bought a vacation cottage in the Catskills for $90,000 and spent every weekend renovating it in time for their wedding, according to this article in The New York Times. They kept their renovation budget down to $10,000 and their furnishing/decorating budget to $2,352--buying lots of used things from Craigslist, salvaging things from heavy trash, and getting items donated from friends and family.
Hooray for the power of partnership!
