    I love the first one.  It’s so open and bright.  The first word that came to my mind for the second was “claustrophobia.” 

    As for humidty and hair…can you ask your hair stylist for suggestions when you do the trial?  She might have good suggestions on how to combat that!

    While the Jewel Box is very pretty, I voted for the State Room based on the pros & cons that you provided. I think the State Room can definitely work with your vintage/country theme.

    If I am choosing my own wedding, I will go with the first one.  It’s just so bright and modern and pretty.  I guess it depends on what time of the day you have your ceremony.  If it’s gonna be dark, then I guess either one is okay.  I like having a lot of natural sunlight to the venue. 

    I agree with Abbie017 when I saw the second one.  I think it’s nice but I don’t think it will be my first choice.

    Jewel box all the way. I’m having a garden feel at my wedding too. Check out a real moss runner. It would look so beautiful in this venue to walk down on.

    I voted State Room. Personally, I think the vintage/country theme will look better here than in the Jewel Box. I think the wood would look great for this theme.

    While I love the 1st venue, I voted for the second based on your pros/cons. Greenhouses are pretty much always humid, but your stylist may be able to work with that, if you go there. But being rushed is never fun on your wedding day. And I think the second option  can totally work with your theme. The first seems more English Garden, but the second kind of reminds me of a tree house, romantic, forest feel. They’re both beautiful.

    I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the State Room!!!! I think that the architecture is gorgeous, and much more unique. I absolutely adore it!

    I vote for the Jewel box, if you are concerned about the humidity and the multiple weddings, you could always do the Piper Palm House in Tower Grove Park.  It has a very similar feel.  I don’t mean to throw out more ideas…

    I love the first one and I think you’d get better pics at the first venue!! I’m not a fan of the second venue just seems to dark and I’m not a fan of all the wood but 1st venue is to die for!!!

    Wow I love both!

    I think I personally would choose the second (I’m a sucker for wooden beams), but I think the first has that WOW factor!

    @JenGirl:  I agree I voted State room for the very same reason.

    My venue does two weddings per day with little time in between. While scheduling wise it can be pulled off you have to also worry about vendors/rentals pick up and drop off coordination as well.

    For example; my wedding on Friday is at night so all the vendors have to come pick up their items the next morning. Because the venue has two weddings that following day I have to PAY an extra fee to have the rental companies come pick up their items between a very specific two hour window. It is pretty ridiculous! I can’t even imagine having to be rushed and deal with all that on my day of.

    Both venues are gorgeous. You’re so lucky you have two such amazing venues to choose between.

    While the first venue is really beautiful I would actually pick the second. It is so unique, the architecture is beautiful and decorated and in professional pictures!? It’s gonna look like the bomb diggity!! 

    Plus, based on your pros/cons, I also chose the second venue. On your wedding day, the last thing you want is any of what you described about the first venue! Let us know which one you choose!
