gemabride:  I really think you are overthinking this. Stop comparing your wedding to any other wedding. It’s YOUR wedding. It will be wonderful no matter where you have it. I think it’s a great deal and very beautiful. Relax! πŸ™‚

I think it’s beautiful.  I love the beams and the simplicity.  I think it will fit your theme perfectly.

gemabride:  First off, I live in Toronto too 😊

i think it looks so pretty! Once you get your decorations in it, it’ll feel more “you”. I felt the same when I went back to our venue. I’d fallen in love with it the first time but was underwhelmed when I went back. I loved it the day of our wedding because it was filled with family and friends which is what makes it special. Oh yeah, and you’ll marry the love of your life there which will make it memorable for you two 😊

stardustintheeyes. Your venue is very understated and classic. You can basically do anything you want with it because it is a clean slate, ready to be personalized. I think you actually got pretty lucky considering the financial side of it, plus a lot of brides are stuck decorating a certain way due to the look of their venue. You don’t have that problem! Look at those clean lines and that timeless architecture!

gemabride:  I don’t know what has caused you to doubt your decision, but you have chosen a terrific venue. The architecture is interesting, even the chairs are beautiful.

The windows will make a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony, although the photographer will have to deal with the lighting challenge.

Note the placement of the flower arrangemnts in your first pic. They don’t really stand out against the windows, vs these ones that are taller

I would’t try to do any sort of traditional arch against that backdrop. It just competes with the windows.

you could try to do something like this if the there are beams above the altar area from which you could hang fabric.

Even if you have to hang it a bit in front of the altar, in the pics it will still frame the officiant and the two of you.

Oh comparison, the thief of joy… Your venue is so so beautiful!!! I actually read your first post about your venue a few months ago and it sort of stuck with me because I though it looked absolutely wonderful and so unique and you seemed so excited and in love with it. Remember how you felt back then and you will surely fall back in love with your venue! And stop comparing it with others! There will always be someone who has a bigger and more glamourous venue, but a) it probably comes with a larger price tag and b) your venue is gorgeous and it’s supposed to reflect you and your personality! Plus it’s absolutely perfect for a Paddy’s Day wedding!!! πŸ™‚
