So, back in March, when my parents came to visit, we went to the Houston Heritage Society to check out their event places. I dreamed 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:
But they only have the following dates available:
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 worth. Okay, I do, but I really do not have that kind of money to throw around.
So now 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 the complete article on this wedding here.
Were you able to get married in your dream locale? Or did you compromise due to availability, price, or something else?
