Congrats. Lovely spot.
I just resturned from a site visit for our wedding ceremony venue. It’s so exciting to have it booked and confirmed, and to be able to move ahead with envisioning decor, etc.
I find it feels like you can’t move forward until these things are done, so it’s a relief to check things like that off the list.

@Nautigirl: I agree! I feel like a crazy person! I just want our venue booked already!
I’m just so torn between getting married at the place ( which is beautiful! It’s on the water and all but if it rains we are stuck inside and the inside ceremony reminds me of a funeral home!!! ) or at my church.
So after we check out 2 more places, then I will decied which I want to do! Also the lady at the venue is trying to talk me into doing a first look if we get married at the venue which I kind of don’t want to do. So many things to think about!!
Oh and to make it worse ( in a way lol) she added 2 extra things if we book by nov. 15!

@FutureMrs.browneyes: I’ve felt “held up” until I had the venues secured. We finalized plans for the ceremony venue today. It’s awesome. Very unique (they host *maybe* 1 wedding a year) and best of all, it’s FREE. I kept asking the guy things like “So, can I hire someone to serve the champagne after the ceremony” and he’s say “Oh, one of our guys can do that”. Can I come in and decorate in the morning? “Oh, we’ll ‘dress’ the boat, and put out the tables. But you can come and do anything else you’d like to”
Anyhow, now that I have a place to get married, and a place to have the reception, I can almost fill out my plans for the day. Going to wait until I have a photographer hired to carve it all in stone.
If you are getting attentive service, I’d say go for it!
