Possible cermony/reception locations.
Well, our dream is Hawaii, second place would be in my side yard with subs & cupcakes but my side yard doesn't hold 15 people much less 150. I really want something more like a backyard party and less like a gold-plated, chair covered, chair bowed, cookie cutter wedding palace. So here are some places we'll visit this weekend:
Oak Tree Lodge: in my hometown; is an outdoor picnic place (covered but not enclosed); has mini golf; we could have the hula show by the pool!! Cheapest option.
The Mill at Spring Lake Heights: if it winds up being in the winter; is on a lake; is a wedding palace but is fairly cheap compared to other wedding palaces.
Sandy Hook: ceremony on the bay and reception under a tent; kinda pricey but is on the water; ceremony and reception all in one place.
South Wall Banquet Facilities: basically the firehouse (but a nice one) for the ceremony; get married on the beach first then have reception at the firehouse; have more to manage with this one as far as catering, etc.
