    Honestly when I looked at the pic before reading your post, I thought the black was just a part of it.  It didnt necessarily seem out of place or anything to me.  I don’t think it’d bother me… the grounds are beautiful so I say go for it!

    Not at all. The netting pales in comparison to the beauty of everything else and it is hardly noticeable among the landscape. Your photographer will also be savvy enough to position you and your wedding party so that the netting won’t be in the background of any photos.

    I grew up on Long Island and know that gorgeous site! Congratulations on such a fantastic venue! 🙂

    To be honest, I had to look twice at the first picture to spot it. Your photographer should be smart enough to be able to work around it.

    I’m another Long Island Bride. The Vanderbuilt is so absolutely goregous, it would be a dream wedding spot for my FH and I but the price range is pretty steep.

    I thought those were before pictures and were wondering where the afters were.  I think you’re good in that 99% won’t notice.  Also, most beautiful historical bldgs go under frequent lengthy renovations so the 1% understand.

    It could be really awful, ugly scaffolding, rusting paint buckets, and gross construction workers, so I think this is the least of your worries. haha

    It took me some time to notice the black netting, and even when I did, I don’t think it looks too noticeable or too bad, so no it wouldn’t bother me. I love all the pics of that place, and would so get it if I could.

    I saw it, but just came back from Europe where all the old builidngs seem to be under some sort of construction!  I think it’s just par for the course and your photographer will easily be able to shoot around it.

    I understand where you’re coming from, because I’m SUPER picky about everything haha.  Honestly though, I didn’t even notice it just looking at the photos!  I had to really look to figure out what you were upset about!  I wouldn’t stress about it…just enjoy your day.  🙂

    I’d honestly rather know the area was safe and secure than worry about it. Its used to protect people from falling debris and unfortunately it has to be there while work is being done or they’d have to shut down the venue.

    It will be beautiful regardless. Lucky you!

    I didn’t see the netting the first time.  I think it’ll be fine – and it looks like your venue has some other great spots for photos, too.
