  • Wedding: September 2011

We just booked Locust Grove for this September.  Have you looked at Gardencourt at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary.  They have enough indoor space for 200 and you can have the ceremony in their Rose Garden.  It’s beautiful!

I second Gardencourt.  It would be a beautiful place to get married.  However, be sure to check out the interior carefully.  We looked at booking there but realized we would have to split our guests (about 200) up into two different rooms during dinner, which we didn’t want to do.  The smaller room is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully decorated (you woudn’t have to do much there in terms of decor) but the larger room, where the band/DJ and majority of guests would be, would need a lot more work.  We loved the venue except for that room.. it was going to cost more money than I wanted to spend in order to make the space into something that appealed to us. 

We eventually ended up booking the Olmsted, which I would also highly recommend as a reception venue.

We did Louisville Glassworks. Not a garden, but ceremony on the roof, and reception indoors. Loved it!

  • Wedding: June 2011

I recommend Hurstbourne Country Club, but I may be a little biased since I’m getting married there this June! 🙂 

But I was just like you, wanted and outdoor (garden) ceremony and indoor reception.  At the Hurstbourne Country Club they don’t have a garden but they do have this chapel wall/alter type thing–very pretty for weddings.  And the inside is beautiful!  You may need to split people up into two rooms but the rooms are connected (just a fireplace that splits up the space).  I found some great pictures online of another couple that had a wedding there last year.

They’ll give you a better idea of the chapel wall/alter and the inside of the country club.

Good luck!

I’m sure you have already looked everywhere by now, but I had my ceremony in the Rathskeller at the Seelbach.  It was beautiful and Kristina Haysley was so helpful with everything and answered all of my many questions with a smile on her face.  I’m not sure if the room would fit 200 people though, but it might.  We had it set up for 120 and there was still room left.
