WR - We Have a VENUE!

So FI & I went venue shopping this weekend. We had a shortlist of places we wanted to look at - two in the Newport area, and one in CT. The first place we went in Newport we loved, but it didn't HIT us as "the one." The second one we definitely didn't like. The third... OH the third.

We went there yesterday, and it was just IT. The ceremony will be outside, right on the water. When I walked down to the spot, I got head-to-toe goosebumps, and started crying. I looked at FI & said "We're getting MARRIED. Right here."

The reception will be inside the largest gallery:

I'm absolutely in love. Unfortunately, the event coordinator is out of the office until WEDNESDAY, so we can't pick a date until she gets back!! It's going to be the longest two days EVER. But YAYYYYYY VENUE!!!

    I LOVE the dress!!! You're venue is amazing too!

    What month are you guys looking at getting married?  As much as I LOVE the dress, I know I tried on similar ones and thought the fabric was heavy (so if it's in the middle of summer it might be a little warm).  I really really really love that dress on you though, but want to make sure you'll be comfortable.

    @lilaack28 - I was shocked at how much I loved the fit & flare silhouette - I never thought that I'd be able to wear that shape. I like it a lot more than the ballgown. 

    @Dignity100 - we're looking at early-to-mid May right now. Unfortunately, the venue coordinator is out of the office until Wednesday, so we can't pick our date today, which I was hoping for, haha :)

    Wonderful!! I love the location! Where did you look in RI, if you don't mind me asking?

    @500days - we went to The Landing in Newport. It was really gorgeous, but there were a few things we were concerned about - mainly, parking and ceremony location. Because we aren't doing a church, we want to do the ceremony on site, and while The Landing has a lovely dock area, there is no room for seating - everyone would have to stand along the decks!

    @GoldenPenguin The Landing is definitely a nice spot in the summer...super busy over there though. Very little parking in Newport :-(  I looked at Oceancliff and Easton's Beach...I didn't end up liking them like I thought I would. I think Mystic is a perfect location!!!

    @GoldenPenguin - With the time of year you're looking at - buy that dress!!!  (or a different one if you fall in love with a different one, but that one is stunning on you!)

    That venue looks amazing for an outdoor ceremony! I was just up that way last week and kept thinking how beautiful all the water is. That dress is lovely too!
