We knew from the very beginning of our wedding planning that we wanted a venue that could host both our ceremony and reception. We also wanted a place that reflected our personal sense of style. We visited a handful of venues before coming across "The One." This was exactly what we were looking for. This building was completely remodeled a year and a half ago so everything is brand new and super modern. I wish I would have taken more pictures inside but I was so busy taking it all in that I forgot. When we go back for our tasting, I will try to get some pictures of the inside.
(entrance- LOVE the stone work!)
but instead we opted to just use it for pictures

(waterfall next to gazebo- not running at the time the pic. was taken)
This is why we opted to not get married under the gazebo. As beautiful as this aisle is, it is not going to work too well with the heels that I plan on wearing. I'm accident prone as it is, so that would just be asking for a disaster.

So, you're probably wondering where we are having our ceremony. We're having the ceremony on the deck! All of these tables and chairs will be cleared away and we will have our own chairs set up to create an aisle. At the end of the aisle, will be an arbor. The arbor from my backyard (pictured here). The arbor has tremendous sentimential value to me as my grandfather built it and he has now passed away. I have been so upset at the idea of him not being at my wedding so it makes perfect sense to have a part of him there at the most important part of our wedding day.
What kind of sentimential things are you planning to/did you work into your wedding day?
