im trying very hard to find a outdoor ceremony spot for a fall 2012 wedding that will please the groom. unfortunatly he hasnt been to more then 1 wedding, and doesnt understand that if there is a glimpse of something unsightly off in the distance, or in the surrounding properties that no one will notice. and he cannot picture an alter, or arbor, or even an isle in a grass area, so he objects to all the places. (isnt it the bride who is supposed to be picky? lol)
originally we were looking for a barn to use, if even only as the back drop. but thats a lot harder to find then one may think. then he seen a gazebo on the water at jackson park. it is pretty, but will only hold 3 people and we have a 10 person wedding party.
so then i called around and came across sippo lake- but their dock is public, and we cannot ask any one on the dock to move for us to have a clear isle to walk down.
i know of the gazebo with the water in north canton- but there are tons of goose poop in that area. too much for even the barn raised girl i am.
i took him to the top of petros lake park- he didnt like that the timken plant was seen over the horizan 1 mile away.
i tried lock 4 after i showed him pics i took of the kids there. he said the pictures looked altered cause it isnt as pretty there as it looked in the pics. he liked it up by the trail, but we cannot do it there due to park rules.
we went to monument park gardens in canton- he only liked the water bridge- which is again a public trail.
i even thought about cashing in the savings account to pay the $6k+ for having it at lakeside in canton south, or even occasions in clinton. but id rather have that money for a down payment on a house then a wedding in a gazebo.
if a last resort is in a church, then so be it. but i want a old wood one that seats like 80-100, not a large modern one. east greenville has one, are there any more around?
