Engagment Picture Locations

Hello everyone!
    My fiance and I have already taken "part one" of our engagement pictures near the Grand Haven beach. We are looking for some indoor locations, however. We aren't picky as far as the look goes, just something that will allow us to take pictures there for free (will pay admission of course if needed.) Any ideas/suggestions?
Thanks!

It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day." ~The Notebook

    I think you could get some beautiful pictures at Frederik Meijer Gardens.  They charge, but would be really nice.

    Maybe the Van Andel Museum? I know you can take pictures there but I don't know if there's a different policy with "professional" pictures.

    A friend of mine had some really cute ones taken at a laundamat (each of them sat in front of a front loading dryer on the floor with their Chuck Taylors sticking out in front of them etc...) and a grocery store..she actually got in a cart with her FI  pushing her!  Just depends if you are up for fun photos or want serious ones :)

    Try the Amway Grand Plaza.  It is a beautiful hotel in downtown Grand Rapids.  Very elegant with beautiful Chandeliers, fountains and staircases.  Here's a photo that I ran across on flikr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevendepolo/3403453086/

    Oooh, the Amway is a good idea. I didn't even think of that!  I'm sure that would make for beautiful photos!

    Yes!  There are many interesting lines, angles and architecture that make for good photo compostiion!  If you go there, you'll have to post some pictures afterward.  Would love to see them!
