I fell in love with the third venue I looked at. It's a park like setting in the middle of a local berry farm /field. Unfortunately, there was another bride with my date that had looked at it too, but was still undecided on if she wanted it or not.
The owner of the venue just called to say that since he hasn't heard back from the other girl, as far as he's concerned, it's mine! YAY!!!!
Feels good to get started... and to announce my first check.
