I'm new to the boards, and I've already got two questions! I'm not getting married until Summer 2011, but we're looking at venues and photographers now.
My top venue choice is currently the Inn at Longshore in Westport. However, I live in Atlanta (I'm from CT), and won't be able to see it in person until the end of February. I'm dying down here! I've found a TON of pictures, but there's one thing I'm dying to know.
In this photo of a ceremony in the ballrom, you can clearly see ugly ceiling tiles: http://www.innatlongshore.com/Ceremonies-03.html
I know it's an old picture because the lighting fixtures are different now, but I'm wondering if the ceiling tiles have been updated. In most photos of the ballroom, you can't see them. Has anyone been there recently? Any other comments or opinions? ARE THERE UGLY CEILING TILES IN THE BALLROOM?
Also, I feel in my gut (based on photos I've seen online) that Toby Morris should be my photographer, but he lives in California until March, so I won't be able to meet with him in person when I'm there next month. Have any of you used him? Any comments?
I'm also a little concerned about booking him without seeing his albums in person -- any comments on the quality of those?
Thanks so much, everybody! Sorry for the long post!
