wedding week: the venue

where to get married?

where to have the reception?

it sets the tone and theme for the wedding day, yes?

in honor of pink champagne's wedding 
in *three* days, let's talk about "the place"

i think i've been to every type of venue and reception...
the hotel
the country club
the cape
the country
the inn
the hall 
and on and on

and i have to say, each wedding has had its' own spin and loveliness

a few of the unique ones i've been to:

the drake hotel in chicago
lobster bisque with sherry
a 20+ person orchestra where we danced all night

my uncle, cousin and her husband at
the art institute in st louis

beautiful setting
hot dog cart for snacks after the ceremony, so cute!

our good friend's own farm in vermont
the wedding cakes were little bundt cakes 
to look like nests with chocolate eggs on top!
mr prep and i got married at the 
old first church in bennington, vt -- his hometown

and had our reception in a tent on the property 
of an old vermont inn, across from a covered bridge!

how did you choose your wedding and reception site?
what does your dream wedding look like?


  1. What gorgeous venues! And I'm in LOVE with the church you got married in - so pretty and quaint. All these posts are making me veeerrrry excited for this weekend!

  2. Paid you a little visit to say THANKS for stopping by the Ooh La Frou Frou Collection blog. So glad you love it. Thanks for your lovely words. I've followed your wonderful blog back as well ... and of course ... best wishes to Pink Champagne!!!!

  3. No way- I have driven past that church a dozen times at least! I drive that way a lot to go get my hair cut in Manchester.
