After much deliberation, we decided to book our venue SIGHT UNSEEN, as we are working abroad until November and want to get married next summer. My family has been going to the venue, taking pictures, meeting with the staff, and it seems like the perfect place for us. We’ll have an outdooor garden ceremony, an outdoor cocktail hour in the terrace area and an indoor reception. Best parts: they had our first choice of dates (6.21.13–Summer solstice) and allow FI to provide his homebrew at no extra charge!! So excited, I feel like things are finally falling into place! 🙂
