I’m suuuuper excited–we found a new date and received confirmation yesterday that they got our deposit, so it’s on! I yanked a couple of pictures from around the Interwebs because it’s so, so pretty. It’s not huge, but we’re inviting around 50 people, so our guest list will end up being on the smaller side.
Presenting our wedding venue: Corradetti Glassblowing Studio!
LOOK AT THIS CEILING, BEES. LOOK AT IT.
It’s $2600 for four hours, which should be plenty, but we can tack on an extra hour or two for basically nothing. There’s valet parking, too! We also get to save money on decorations because all we’ll need are a few centerpieces (we’re thinking baby’s breath in some interesting jars or vases, but that’s still up in the air).
I cannot say enough awesome things about this place. The couple that own it are just amazing people and the area is gorrrgeous.
And now that we’ve booked the venue, FH and I can chill for a while and keep adding to my already massive Pinterest board. Speaking of which, FH is ultra-involved in giving feedback and ideas, which I love. I’ll be finishing up my internship for my MS around the time we get married–next year’s going to be mad-busy, so I’m thrilled that he’s helping so much! TEAMWORK.

Looks great! Would guests be able to blow their own glasses and take home a little souvenir? Probably complicated but it would be cool!

- Wedding: October 2019 - Chateau Lake Louise
That is straight up DOPE. Well spotted, Bee! I love a unique venue and I can say with confidence I’ve never heard of another wedding in such a setting.
Who needs flowers?!?!!
Nice work. Can’t wait for the recap on this one!

No, but they do offer some sort of wedding souvenir (I haven’t asked about it yet) and they sell jewelry and such in the gallery area when you first walk in! I’m seriously considering getting myself a pair of earrings to wear for the big day.
Thanks! We looked forever
to find something like this that wasn’t, like, 13k just for the rental. (Baltimore is expensive, as I’m quickly learning.)
I had a dream-crusher moment where I thought we wouldn’t be able to find something affordable; we have the money to spend, but we don’t want to spend it if we don’t have to, you know? I’m allergic to dropping that much on just the venue, so this place was a miracle. And it freed up a ton of money to spend on food, which is good because I had no idea $110+ a plate was standard around here. Gulp.
We were looking at the Mansion on O Street in DC, but it’s quite a jaunt for all of our out-of-town guests because Dupont Circle is kind of a transportation nightmare, at least from what I saw the day we visited. It was delightfully tacky–I’m from the Midwest and it was basically the SE equivalent of the House on the Rock–but not what we had in mind for a wedding venue.

awww I looked into your venue when I first started searching too, super cool but way too small for our guest count. Such a funky vibe 🙂
