Cre- That’s stunning. So many beautiful places there. I can totally picture an evening ceremony (with lots of candles and lanterns) followed by champagne and hors d’oeuvres!

Gorgeous! In fact, it totally reminds me of our venue….if you got married in front of the house instead of away from it.

Very quaint. It really looks liek a nice house–not overly “plantation” if that’s what you’re stil trying to avoid. It looks like it’s been modernized

I would be sad to lose my brunch buddy! Still, I can definitely see where you are going with this, and I honestly think that is a much better fit for the location. Brinner… hmm… I’m not so for it. I am for very sophisticated hor’s d’eourves!

Also, as far as the historical implications go, for what its worth, even if you found a place built 7 years after the civil war, or 17, its likely that African-Americans were taken advantage of somehow. You unfortunately cannot escape that kind of thing. If I were you, I would look at kind of how Fiance (who is AA) and I look at the White House – his ancestors built it, with no acknowledgment, and so we can acknowledge their accomplishment and the joyful reality that there is now one of their descendants is the PRESIDENT in it! Just the same, you two have the right to have your beautiful wedding in this place, something those African-Americans that built it probably only dreamed of. Just my two cents.
