So I'm finally looking at venues for the wedding (our's is set for September 17th, 2011). We're touring Abernethy Center this weekend (so excited) and Lakeside Gardens next weekend.
I've been having trouble finding other venues in the nearby area that match these two in the sense that they have beautiful garden setting and inside areas for a reception (I don't want to do the tent thing...unless it rains on my outdoor ceremony). Are there other places like these I should look at?
Also, we're looking for photographers. I'm very interested in either Images by Floom or Remembrance Photography. Has anyone used either of these?
Also any DJ recs?
I will give one warning myself: Gray Gables Estates. I've tried calling this venue on numerous occassions and left a voicemail saying how I'd like schedule a tour to see their venue. The answering machine (which I got to listen to all 10 times throughout the week) reassures they have wedding coordinators there 7 days a week and will get back to a message asap. Well...I'm not impressed. They've never called me back nor picked up their phone. Wedding season or not, you'd think they'd at least have 5 minutes to call me back. So yea, kind of annoying, this venue is scratched from my list :P
