Venue Update---kinda! Pic Heavy!
I'm so sorry that it has taken me so long to get back with you on this but I have been dreading posting anything about our potential venue since we learned some disappointing news about it when we went for the tasting. Apparently they are remodeling the dining room (which is where we want to have the ceremony) next September to have a more "clubby" vibe to it. :(
We are just unsure what to do at this point since we don't want to pay all that money to "Split the ballroom"!? No thank you. Split the price and perhaps I would think about it. Nor do we want to put money down and hate the results of the remodel or even worse not be finished yet.
Anyway here are a few pictures from my cell phone. I apologize in advance for the quality. Some of them don't really do any justice for the venue. It is a beautiful venue.
This is a side shot of the dining room where we would like to have the ceremony.
There is a piano in there that can't be moved but I think I could make it work.
Another view of the dining room-horrible picture-sorry
I am in love with the hallway of this building.
I love the bathrooms as well. All of the stalls have little mouthwash contatiners anc cups and they are gorgeous on the inside.
This will be the room where my girls and I can get ready beforehand. Minus all the games etc.
The other half of the room
This is actually a gorgeous room that didn't turn out because of the lighting but it would be where the gifts and guestbook would be. I can of course decorate it however, I want it to be.
Also, I didn't much care for the new coordiantor. The guy I had before her was wonderful and she just didn't seem that enthusiastic about anything. Not that I want a spaz for a coordinator but a little thrill for what you are doing is always appreciated.
On the other hand some of the food was really good.
