  • Wedding: June 2019

What a beautiful venue! And I love the convenience of the hotel for your guests.

We are getting married in an outdoor venue with a tented reception (not everyone’s cup of tea, I know!) For us, we really wanted an outdoors, romantic-feeling garden setting for our ceremony (as well as somewhere for our guests to walk around in-explore a bit). And we didn’t want our guests to have to travel between ceremony and reception locations, so we opted for a venue that allows that. The pictures (which are ones I took on my phone haha) don’t really do the place justice — it’s stunning ๐Ÿ™‚ (and despite the house on the property, we can’t actually go in it on the day of the wedding. So still an outdoor venue! There is a separate smaller building for restrooms on site)

Our ceremony will be in the garden, our cocktail hour will be in the small field overlooking the river, and then finally our ceremony tent will be located on the edge of a huge rolling field near the front of the property (not pictured).

All we have to do is hope it doesn’t rain and ruin everything! But I have until June before I’ve gotta worry ๐Ÿ™‚

None of these pics are ours, but I love our venue!

 

The east East wing is exclusive for the wedding, as is the gardens (to the right), we had our drinks reception there with the quartet playing outside.

This is the Great hall for the ceremony. The bridal suite is up the stairs, so my entrance was down the big staricase and we got married in front of the fire place. There’s a huge stained glass window behind this shot. As soon as I saw this room, I knew this was the place. We also had our first dance and our ceilidh in here!

This room is the one the dinners are served in, it goes back behind where the image is, but it’s nice and bright. We had the top table along the long side of the room, so we were close to all our guests. 

This is the vaults bar for the after evening do, we had a DJ and dancing down here after the ceilidh had finished. 

I loved how close it was to our city (about 20 minutes) with still being in the country. There’s also over 50 bedrooms on site, so it was convenient for guests whether they wanted to stay or not. And I loved how it looked!

  • Wedding: May 2019 - York, ME

michelleh0686 :  This is fun thread!  Ours is a bit of a destination wedding, and I’m so excited about our ceremony and reception space!

We are looking to spend less than $10,000 total on the wedding, so finding a venue in a vacation destination with a reasonable price had proven difficult.  We are having the ceremony here for less than $300, and the dinner will be $300 to rent the room and $50/pp including taxes and gratuity.  We’re looking at less than $2,500 all in for the ceremony and reception – so excited!

I don’t have photos of the reception room set up, but it has three walls of floor to ceiling windows looking out on the harbor- it’s beautiful!

I can’t find any pics that really showcase our venue, but we’re getting married at a ski resort in Feb. We’re big outdoor winter sport lovers.

Ours! We got married on one of our favourite surfing beaches and had the reception in a stunning event hall over looking the water. We are surfers, this is our favourite surf town so naturally we had to get married here

We picked our venue for few reasons, it’s a hotel and we wanted guests and us to be able to stay the night before and night of, it was reasonable priced for our large guest list, and the view!!

  • Wedding: August 2020 - Hampton, VA

These aren’t mine but this is where we plan on getting married! We will likely go to tour and book early next year. Hopefully our date will be 8.8.2020!

It’s a historic post office that was converted into a venue! So cool.

  • Wedding: November 2019

We are getting married in a old manison that was built in the 20s and converted into a restaurant that has 4 dining areas. These aren’t my pictures, but you’ll get the vibe. 

We’ll be getting married in front of this fire place. I particularly love the art work as my FH is a traffic engineer, very fitting! 

The marble staircase is everything! I can’t wait to take our family photo’s on it. 

One of the main dining rooms. 

The oak bar (second dining room) that was the original library in the house. 

And I think the outside will make for alot of pretty pictures, even if it rains. 

We chose this place because the price was right & the food & cocktails are out of this world! We had an anniversary dinner there back in May and I fell in love with it then, I’m lucky that FH agreed ๐Ÿ™‚ The restaurant itself is beautiful and we don’t need to really decorate it (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself because you know, budget). It’s also in the town we met, it’s a good location for most of our guest (we have a few out of towners, but they would be out of towners no matter where we got married) and it’s all in one place!

We wanted a venue with distinctive architecture and other features that could serve as its own decor, and I wanted somewhere with an outdoor feel without having to worry about the weather, so we have chosen these garden conservatories.

I have been here a few times in the past for plant classes, so these are my photos.

The two conservatories are connected by an outdoor garden, which will be the site of the cocktail hour as long as it doesn’t rain.
