Gorgeous venue.. loved the story on how you finally found the ONE.  My story of how we found ours is not nearly as interesting or screen worthy as yours but here goes:

When I started on the venue search, I thought I knew what I wanted: a venue where I could have both ceremony and reception, beautiful grounds with nice views and gardens, all inclusive packages.  Well, I ended up with a venue completely different than my dream vision.

First off the price for AI venues were pretty up there for the venues I really loved. I visited a venue hoping that it would at least be a contender.  I saw the pics online and liked what I saw.  By this time I had decided to give up on the AI venues (the budget ones were either to small or just not right) and fi really wanted a place where we could bring in our own vendors. We drive up to the venue and I am underwhelmed.  First off, there is no outdoor space: no gardens, no nice views, just a parking lot and apartment buildings (so no ceremony site). I was not happy but still wanted to see the inside.  Well, when I walked into the space my jaw literally dropped.  It took my breath away.  I was so happy.  It was a gorgeous space…HUGE, super high ceilings, large columns, fits up to 250 (more than enough for my 150 person wedding), includes chairs and tables with rental, budget price, full kitchen, 5 bathrooms and a room upstairs for me to use.  I was in love.  

BUT I still wanted to shop around.  The more I thought about the venue the more I wanted to have my wedding there.  I weighed the pros and cons against other venues and I kept coming back.  So finally we booked it and I could not be happier.  When we went again for another walk through and informational meeting, I could not stop smiling and envisioning my wedding there.
