FINALLY found our ceremony site!

After being snubbed by the church my FIs mom was married in because neither of us are baptized we tried a local park area, but they are booked for our date for a fall festival. We also tried a local college chapel, but they booked a school function. So we met with a small inn that had a garden gazebo area and they were really nice, but could hold max 75 people. It was also obviously outdoors but they didn't have big enough space for an indoor backup plan. And then they have a few restrictions, which while I understood why, I didn't care for.. like no petals or white aisle runner due to possible winds. I had lost so much hope I just settled for this place though. I decided petals and a runner weren't HUGE issues and id cut back my guest list and pray it was nice weather.

Then in steps my sisters stepmom (we have different dads).. her nephew is a pastor at a local church that's about 2 blocks from our reception location. She told us to at least go talk to him since I wasn't completely happy with the inn. And so we did this past Tuesday and boy am I so glad that we did!! This pastor is so accepting of others and is an overall genuine good guy. We felt so comfortable talking to him, like he was an old friend. He showed us the church and we fell in love! Plus, there's no major restrictions, so I get my petals and runner!! And even better, were going to start attending church, which we haven't done in 10+ years.

I do feel a teensy bit bad about giving FI grief and being so dramatic about finding a ceremony site. I was just so worried we'd never find anything we liked!
