It's a happy, happy day! Jeff and I have decided on our reception venue. I received nearly 40 RFPs, but only a few places were in our price range. After looking at a few places, we walked into the venue, and I nearly jumped for joy.
It's not in a likely place, but it's perfect. The dance floor is 2,000 square feet, so we have plenty of room to do the Cha-Cha Slide and the Chicken Dance. But what I like best is that it's an atrium, so when the sun goes down and the lights wrapped around the tall palm trees come on, you feel as though you're outside.
The chairs are a dark, cherry wood, and, personally, look better without the wedding chair slipcovers (one less thing to rent). And the canopy with up lighting really add a nice, tropical effect.
Luckily, Jeff and I came on a Friday night when they have a buffet dinner, so we got to sample the food. From the cod to the stir fry, everything tasted delicious. Our guest will be well fed.
The wedding coordinator showed us several letters of recommendations from previous couples as well as photos from past weddings. We went through the options, read the contract and signed.
We have a wedding date now: April 20, 2013.
