Venue Ideas

July 6, 2009

So, back in…when was it, March? When my parents came to visit, we went to the Houston Heritage Society to check out their event places. I dreamt of getting married at the St. John Chapel, a quaint little chapel where you can ring the bell as you exit, and having a reception on Conally Plaza, the outdoor space next to the chapel with lovely, big oak trees:

I love the juxtaposition of the historical chapel with the ultra modern downtown skyline.

But they only have the following available dates:

10/31/09, 11/28/09. 12/19/09. 12/26, 09, then it skips to june 2010. All the nice Spring months are taken by city festivals. Boo.

And it would cost an extra $1000 to get married at the chapel for a 30 minute ceremony. I don’t love it $1000 much. Ok I do but I really do not have that kind of money to throw around.

So now I am (I mean, we are) branching out to outside of Houston. I would love a barn/vineyard type feel. Something like this, perhaps?

The decorating ideas I have would fit much better in this type of setting, I fear. See complete article on this wedding here.

Any other ideas? Throw them at me!
