Hah! I found out that my courthouse’s walls are like… mint green, pink, yellow and gold-flake. Which of course totally doesn’t match my basically grass-green accessories. But eh, what can I do? That’s great that they’re painting your venue’s walls back!!! GL with your photog.

DANG! Green? Why would anyone thing that is a good idea? I mean, for a house maybe, but for a wedding venue? It’s just plain weird.

I am glad that they are painting it back– on the plus side, the walls will not only be white now, they will be freshly painted white!

I take it green didn’t go with your color scheme?    At least it’s being painted back.  I would have been one of the brides complaining if that had happened to me!  We were pretty fortunate when it came to planning- no big issues.  If this is the photographer you really want, then I would keep trying to contact them for a bit longer, but be careful.  If this is how they conduct business, you want to make sure you get what you want and don’t get stuck paying for something you don’t!

Our venue has changed coordinators 3 times!  Can I tell you how fantastic it is to "meet" a new person each time we contact them??  UGH!

Not a good business move, hands down bad.

So glad they’re painting the walls back before your day! That is crazy they weren’t going to tell anyone. I would be fired up if I showed up for setup and found it a different color!!!!

Our venue’s walls are green, but they actually look really muted.  They look alright pictures too… but I agree, a neutral color like biege or white would probably look better.  Glad they’re changing it back!

I can’t believe they would do that without saying anything–hang in there!

What possessed this venue to paint the walls green? (I like green, but not if I booked an all white venue!)

Thank goodness it’s being resolved! As for your photog…. I can relate. The photographer I wanted didn’t want to take us because we are having a daytime wedding. I still would have needed them for 8 hours, but they didn’t like my timeline. They wanted to do two weddings back to back…

The right vendor is out there. Good luck finding them 🙂
