    I really like the castle.  But I went to a wedding once where the dining was seperated from the dancing by a wall, and it really brought the whole atmosphere down.

    I picked Bellevue GC.  I liked The Castle but other than the separation it is also non-ADA compliant which means any guests with disabilities are going to run into issues with the venue which may include lack of ramps and an inability to enter the bathroom with a wheelchair.  Not sure if you have any disabled family or friends but keep in mind that accidents can happen and someone may need an accessible space.  I broke my knee a few years ago and let me tell you that using an ADA compliant bathroom is enough of a pain that a non-compliant one must be a nightmare.

    Just based on pictures alone, I like #3 and #4.  I would put them equal knowing nothing else about them.  I wouldn’t like the dance floor to be separate so I would eliminiate #2 based on that alone.

    I like the Castle even if the dancing is separate.  Hotel Commonwealth is also nice but I don’t think worth putting you $2k over budget. (Debt is a bad thing!)

    Um hello you could get married in a CASTLE?!?!?!?!? I totally would pick that one 🙂 Unless it doesn’t fit your theme. In that case my second choice would be the golf club. If you’re worried about the tennis court backdrop when you walk in, you could hang ribbon off the fence to hide it. You could also provide a map with your invitation with specific driving directions and put out signs for people to follow.

    I voted Hotel Commonwealth.

    For me, the tennis court spoiling the photos of the bridal walk would be a dealbreaker at the Golf Club. The Castle is lovely and would be a great second choice, but I would be worried about the separate dancing and dining really interrupting the flow of the reception and ending the night early. (If the dancing and tables would still be in sight of each other, this would be my first choice, though.) Spinelli’s is also nice, but I would feel like I was stepping on another bride’s toes to use it, plus I think you’re right about it being very vanilla.

    Have you considered using separate venues for ceremony and reception? We used a historic stone mansion for the ceremony and photos, then went to a hotel with a beautiful ballroom for the reception and accomodations.

    I voted for the golf club because it sounds like the cons are the easiest to work around. But it looks like you have some great choices!
