This is my first post! My fiance and I just got engaged on Thanksgiving day. We were back in my hometown in England when Bryan proposed. It was the sweetest proposal as he talked to my grandad and asked for my grandfather's blessing before he dropped down on one knee, all so that my grandad (who is 91) can be involved as he won't be able to come out for a wedding given his age and health.
Now, Bryan and I are trying to plan our wedding and love the idea of a summer wedding. So, we're aiming for summer 2011.
We like the idea of a winery setting...lush, green, great atmosphere, lots of character....but we don't altogether like that we only have 5 or 6 hours to enjoy our actual ceremony and reception time.
Does anyone know of any venues in northern california, that have that winery or amazing scenery atmosphere but will allow you a long wedding time (not just with paying by the half hour or hour)??
Any comments on venues will be greatly appreciated!
Nikki and Bryan.
