i think i found a venue! PIC HEAVY
so my wedding won't be for awhile, but i figured it would be a good idea to have somewhat of a clue of what i am going to be doing! i am into the idea of having a destination wedding (we live in la) and i actually lived in tempe when i went to asu. i was looking everywhere online for a place where we could have an israeli and jewish style wedding, with a middle of a desert feel to it. ever since i went on a birthright trip when we spent a night in a benduin tent, i thought it was the coolest thing ever
anyway i was at a few places that would create my vision. i looked online at camelback mountain resort, but its way outside my price range. i then looked online at the desert botanical garden and the zoo. i really liked both, but decided i think the phoenix zoo might be more for me. the wedding coordinator there said she will work with me for a discounted weekday wedding (i actually love the idea of a wedding on monday lol), and i just think the grounds are so different!
my the reception set up, i know it would be too odd to split people up into tents so i think i will just have 1 be where the bar is, and 1 to get photos done or something. i probably will have the set up similar to the last picture.
