It's Official

Our wedding reception will take place at the Westin Columbus - April 10, 2010!!! Please join me in celebrating this small, ehem, major victory.

Formerly known as the Great Southern Hotel, this beauty sits on the southern edge of downtown, adjacent to the new courthouse. I fell in love with the ballroom. It's sooo elegant. And the colors will work well for springtime. Oh. yes.

Before finding this fab space, we toured 17-bazillion venues.
OK, we toured 4.

A quick run-down on those venues NOT making the cut...

The Vault - The manager/owner is NUTSO. Sorry Manager, if you're reading this. But how are you supposed to manage my wedding when you can't manage yourself?!

Venue at Smith Brothers
- Perched atop the marvelous 670 highway, this place offers fantastic views of downtown. Nice view, but whaaat? I can't hear you. Oh, and the carpet (carpet!?) is green. Lovely.

Franklin Park Conservatory - I fell in love with the Conservatory. I did. It's gorgeous. Breathtaking. Magnificent. Unfortunately, we're not rich. Not at this time in our lives, at least. So I had to say goodbye.

Columbus Athenaeum - Ehem, for those who get married at the Ath-e-nen-a-nu-mum (as the fiance calls it) please be prepared to share your day with 4 other wedding parties. I guess that's cool, if you're a wedding crasher.

Now that the reception venue is booked, the real fun starts. Like...finding a church?
