Look forward to your thoughts. Thanks.

Thanks for the imput. I think the vertical stripes are a pdf issue because I printed it on a plotter (HP) and it looked great. I also thought about getting rid of the major highways, but the midwest is very car dependent and everything is related to where the highway is, etc. I may, however, try lightening it up to reduce clutter.
Also, I'll look into the European source data.
So Mike, now when you have invited everyone on CartoTalk to your wedding, you would have to add more stars - also in other parts of the world!
The map looks good, and seems like a fun project for the wedding guests!
I think the color palette is not the best, esp not the blue tone for the sea, not too much contrast (could be almost white). The north arrow is not correct (north is not the same all over the main map, using this (albers?) projection). For the sea - adding a graticule there (but not on land) gives a sense of the globe, and I think you don't need the ocean names. By the way - Mount Olivet Luthern Church, shouldn't that be lutheran church.
Good luck with the wedding!
Excellent idea and cool map!
I might consider removing the inset for the upper mid-west area. The inset only provides a little bit more detail and this detail can be included on the main map. I might also make the Germany inset a bit smaller.
Doing these two things would add to the balance of your map.
"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality. Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach. That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me? I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.” Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and that stubborn fog clouding my vision with nothing but darkness."
