How is that not “wow”?! Is your mom nuts?! That’s amazing!!!!! My mom didn’t love the idea of us getting married outside. Once she actually got to the wedding and saw everything put together she loved it, but up until that point she really would have rather us gotten married in a hotel or at a golf club. Good thing it wasn’t her wedding 😉

Uhhh… WOW!!! WOULD LOVE to have my wedding there!!!!!

My mom is gonna bitch and complain because mine/ours is higher up the mountains and she has a fear of hights.  AND to make it even better, THERE IS NO DROP SHE CAN SEE!!!!!  (unless she stands on the back of a porch and looks down….but that’s because it’s on the side of a hill, lol).

Are you kidding me? That’s your actual reception site? Looks like something from a movie.

Just remember that moms don’t spend all their time on Weddingbee! She was probably picturing a typical wedding in a hotel ballroom. Weddings are so creative these days and I’m happy that people can pretty much do as they please.

Our reception is in a vineyard tent and my parents still look like this about it :  o_O

Edit: oops, forgot to add my own reaction to your venue. UH. WOW.

@bakerella: Similar thing happened with my mom and our location (on the pier.) She thought I was slightly nuts. But now she brags about what a cool wedding we had. 🙂

@roberts2b: Your venue is stunning!! Sometimes I think moms (and others) just get frustrated when we don’t want to do the traditional thing that they’re expecting of us. I’m sure she’ll be blown away when everything comes together.
