Storyline

In part to preempt her sister Nora from stealing her perfect wedding, Stella convinces Ted to move their wedding up to that weekend on Shelter Island. Beyond Shelter Island not being quite the place that Marshall, Lily or Barney want to be, the wedding faces some immediate issues when Stella learns that Ted has telephoned Robin in Japan to invite her to the wedding, the invitation which she accepted. This move violates Stella's no-ex's at weddings policy as she fears that Ted seeing his ex will bring up old, unresolved feelings. The only thing that could be worse for Stella is if Lucy's father, Tony, was at the wedding. Ted is torn as he really would like Robin, one of his best friends, there. Lily thinks that she has a plan to get Stella to allow Robin to attend, but that plan has some unexpected consequences. When Robin arrives, she has her own admission for Ted. Written by Huggo

Lighthouse & Ferry at end of episode
8 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end of the episode, a small lighthouse is shown with a ferry behind it. That is Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. The ferry is "The Eagle" and it is leaving the Nantucket terminal. So in fact, "Shelter Island" is Nantucket island. From the exotic setting show, it's portrayed as a tropical destination. It was a good episode but from being called "shelter island" I had expected some more outside, island setting scenes. Other notes: Nantucket island is 40 miles from the Massachusetts coast. It is 14 miles long by 3 miles wide. It's a very popular summer tourist area, with a population of approx 70-80,000 in the summer and 10,000 in the winter.
