NOW it's official: October 1, 2011

We have finally made a decision for the wedding, and it's a big one!

We booked our reception venue for October 1, 2011.  Now it really feels official!
Luckily it's still 15 months away, so I don't feel stressed that we haven't made any other decisions yet.

We'll be having the reception at Black Hawk State Park Lodge.  It's gorgeous!

I think the last one is one of my favorites on their website!

Some of my favorite things about having this as our reception venue:

  • It has great indoor and outdoor spaces.  Guests won't be isolated to one space throughout the night.
  • (It includes tables and chairs! I certainly don't want to have to rent everything!)
  • They have plenty of space to accommodate the live band that we plan to have.  And the park rental coordinator said the acoustics are excellent!
  • It's set in a Historic State Park, so the woods surrounding are well-maintained, and even though it's early fall, we might have some fall colors around!  Also, the lodge is so nice, that we don't need a lot of added decorations!
  • They have a nice kitchen for the caterers, so that's convenient!
  • They really include a lot in their rental (security, clean up, etc).
Yay!  The countdown can officially begin!

More to come soon...
