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.
