I picked my venue based on how I thought the walls/furniture/fixtures would compliment my wedding colors.  Haha!  And of course, the size and the price had to be right.  Also, I was having an outdoor ceremony, so I needed a place that would allow me to have the cermony there if it rained.  I knew right away when I found the right place and booked it on the spot.

  • Wedding: August 2012

There were three main deciding factors….maybe four

1) the color and decor matched the overall feel we were going for (relaxed, clean and modern)

2) there was an awesome stone wall/staircase I fell in love with and wanted pics there so bad. I love how they turned out!

3) the bar. It was large with comfortable seating, and it was seperated a bit from the reception but had a large enough door to not be so secluded. This gave my DH and his Army buddies the freedom of drinking it up while our family members remained comfortable away from the alcohol.

and 4) the food was better than the other place we were initially interested in

@HappyORBride:  We picked ours based on location, price, and availability for our date.

@HappyORBride:  Hi to a fellow Oregon Bee! 

We actually eloped in Lincoln City, but our wedding was planned for there as well. We based it on a few things.

  • History: Our 6 month anniversary and first Valentine’s Day together combo trip was to Lincoln City, so it held a pretty special place in our hearts
  • Photos: I literally spent about a year looking at venues in the Portland area and while they were all gorgeous, I thought about what I would enjoy most in our photos 20 years down the road. It all came down to the beach!
  • Memories: Every wedding is gorgeous in its own way, but we wanted our guests to remember a beautiful wedding on the beach, that was just our thing!
