Hey Michigan Bees!
I posted in the proposal board, but figured I should post here too!
I got engaged over the weekend at my family cottage in NE Michigan. Right near the lake, under a big hemlock tree. It was perfect!
Anywho, I have started planning already. As for a date, we’re looking at June 2014 (probably the 21st). We know what church we’re going to get hitched in, the tough part is finding a reception venue. I, like many other bees, want that rustic feel. I’ve been having a tough time finding a barn or something of the like in my area (about 20 minutes south of Monroe). I have looked into a few apple orchards and only one has gotten back to me just to break my heart by not allowing alcohol. Since the closest barns for rent are a good 45 minutes away, I think I might have to drive around our area and ask a private owner to use their barn. I’m sure it would be much cheaper to go that route, especially since our budge is only $10,000. I think we might have a local restaurant cater our reception (award winning ribs!) with casual, yet delicious food.
I really want to get the reception venue booked ASAP so I can feel a little relief.
Any advice is appreciated!
P.S. Here’s some ring porn!
