A few weekends ago Brian and I went on our first venue visit. We went to Ash Lawn-Highland, the home of President James Monroe. It was really beautiful, as you can see.
There are lots of separate gardens where you could spread out and do all kinds of cool and fun things, or just take some awesome pictures. Style Me Pretty featured a wedding a few months ago with some awesome examples. The only problem is that there is really no rain location other than the pavilion. The man who gave us the tour was very insistent that, “It doesn’t rain on weddings here.” But I’m not sure that’s good enough.
I’ve been a little lost on what to do next. We both liked the venue, but we definitely want to keep looking to see if we can find something less expensive or that otherwise suits us better. I’ve been thinking about looking into getting married at my school (which would be both gorgeous and inexpensive) so I guess that’s next. We’ll see. I’m a little exhausted from my day of substitute teaching. Perhaps I’ll feel less overwhelmed when school is out.
