    I voted for Church B but honestly it’s a really hard decision.  My major concerns with Church B is the air conditioning issue as well as the limited time to take pictures.  But I looked at Church B as being the beginning for the both of you instead of just where you grew up.  It also got your fiance’s vote and your grandma’s.  It’s a very hard choice though.

    i voted for church A.  i think the proximity to your parent’s , the “perfect priest”, and the A/C heavily outweigh the “look” of the church. you will be relieved to not be so rushed on your wedding day. your guests will be very cool and comfortable while they enjoy your ceremony. plus you get the added bonus of cute swing-shots and super cool getaway car!!!

    @Mrs. Modern Vintage: Use the little box that looks like a tree to insert pics in post.

    I would go with the pretty church if it is in your budget. It still has meaning to you and your FI so it’s not just another pretty church, though that is partly the reason I like it. Also, it doesn’t sound like you have stayed particularly close to church A through the years. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ok so your pics definitely help to understand why your decision is tough. church B blows church A out of the water as far as looks go…. have you been there at the end of July??? does it stay cool enough that you and your guests will be comfortable?   i’d change my vote possibly here. however, the time management thing as it relates to stress could also outweigh the “looks” vote. IDK it’s a tough call… go with your gut!

    Yeah now that I’ve seen pictures I’d probably definitely pick church B as long as I knew the air wouldn’t be too big of an issue.  It’s still a tough call though and they both do have different “looks”.  The first one would feel more intimate but the second one feels more grand.

    I think it’s a personal choice, but I know I would go with Church A.

    Why? First of all, it’s air conditioned, which is not only good for you, but for your guests as well.

    Also, if you’re getting married at your parents house (we’ll call it location X), you’d have to drive to church B (location Y), back to location X for pictures, and then back to location Y for reception.

    Otherwise it’s just one long drive.

    Yes, it may be more conveniant of a drive for your guests, but they likely only have to do one trip, instead of a back and forth thing you’d have to do.

    Judging from the photos alone, I would go with Church B. Can I ask why you’re doing photos in 4 different places so spread apart though? Wouldn’t it be easier to forego photos at your parents house, or do them beforehand if you’re getting ready there anyways? Plus you’ll have photos at the reception from the evening anyways, so why not do church photos, photos outside the city, and then arrive for the reception. Having four different photo locations sounds like a lot of rushing and a logisitical nightmare depending on how large your wedding party is. We had 6 people on each side (so 14 of us total) and it was like herding cats! It was the only time during the day that I nearly lost my cool.

    I would go with the church you have the strongest connection to. What church do you feel God most in? Where are you most inspired to pray and focus on God?  Seems to me like that should trump everything else. And in the end, I think you’ll feel better about your decision too.
