Wedding Prep: A trip to our reception venue!

Yesterday Brian, Mom, Dad and I went to Bristol Yacht Club, where we will be having our wedding reception on July 14, 2012, to get an idea of the space again, and to start planning some preliminary wedding details.

It was such a beautiful fall day. Not a cloud in the sky, and just a slight chill in the air.

Each time we go to the yacht club, I fall in love with it more and more. It has exactly what we were looking for in a venue from the start: it is an intimate space, it has a fabulous view, it is not stuffy or pretentious, and it feels like “us”.

We were able to get a feel for the layout of the room… how we’ll set up the tables, where the dinner buffet will be, where we’ll have the band, where we’ll dance, etc.

It is such a beautiful space. I cannot wait to arrive to our reception by boat – how cool is that!? – and to celebrate in such a gorgeous venue with Brian and all the people we love most!

    Janie… What a beautiful day at a beautiful venue with my beautiful engaged couple! I agree that each time I head to Bristol Yacht Club, I fall in love with something else about it. It is so warm and lovely and sunny and bright… inside and out. Just like you! This is so, so, so, so exciting! I love you! Mom xoxox!

    Sounds amazing! My cousin did that for her wedding (arriving by boat) and it was so fabulous! We all grew up on the water so it was fitting for her to do that (in fact, the view from the yacht club looks a lot like the view from my grandma’s house on the Chesapeake Bay where I grew up). So exciting to see your plans come together! <3

    This is SO exciting! I cannot wait to read about all your wedding plans. You know you are going to have to live stream your wedding for all your social media friends right? Or maybe I will take a family road trip to see it in person ;).
