Last summer a couple about to get married in New Hampshire wanted to let the world know about their happiness. To do so, they didn’t trust social media or the postal service.

Elizabeth and Bob Piper of Belmont, NH, seem to have freed a balloon bearing their announcement last spring.

Dec. 29 another couple found a note from the happy pair while snowshoeing in an orchard at the west end of Wolfville.

Jessica Wiebe, who hails from Manitoba, noticed something hanging in a bare apple tree while in the orchard: a limp balloon with ribbons and a baggie attached.

Inside was a damp and faded message indicating the Pipers had a wedding shower in July and were due to wed Sept. 21.

 “Wish us well,” reads the message.

Wiebe has a mailing address to contact the Pipers about where their note ended its journey, but the only information she could find online was their wedding registry.
