Wedding Venue

IMGP4522 IMGP4526IMGP4527 IMGP4528

Woo!  It's official: Lumberjack and I are getting married next August 23rd, in this beautiful garden in the middle of a park that I've been going to since I was a little girl.  My mom, Lumberjack's mom, and I went to check out the space again this morning, and at the end we signed papers and paid the deposit.

When we visited back in February, it was pouring rain and there weren't any flowers.  This time, the whole place was exploding with color and greenery, and although it was misting slightly, it was still gorgeous.

It feels good, and a little scary, because now we have to start actually planning the wedding.  Holy crap!

Happy Friday, everybody!

wow-looks lovely......FH and I got married at justice of peace in a procession of 2 other couples on a friday afternoon. Both were "shotgun" weddings with the brides clearly desperate to beat the stork.....We then went to the public museum to spend a few hours where I got "flashed" by some teenagers. then we went to a small dinner party and got trashed. I think yours is going to be way prettier and more romantic.....I love reading your blog....kathie

Yours wedding sounds really cool! I love hearing about small and unconventional weddings, because even though there's going to be a lot of people at ours, I really want it to feel like us. I don't want to be trying to impress anybody; I just want to get together with people we love and have a great party.
As for the venue... I loved this park as a kid - I skinned my knees there, learned to ride a two-wheeler, played in the woods with my brother, and hung out with friends after dark on the swingset in high school. It seems pretty fitting that I should get married there, too!
