The Partridge Inn

Have I told you how thrilled I am to have 101 super awesome followers? You guys rock. Now vote for me and enter my giveaway like good followers are supposed to. ;)

Yesterday my mom, Barbara, and I went to scope out a possible wedding venue. I fell in love with the place. It's very versatile, fits in perfectly with the theme we're shooting for, and aside from having to go with a buffet instead of sit down meal, it's exactly what I want.
Here's the outside. (via)

The rest of these I took during our visit yesterday.
 The main ballroom. We'd use this for both the ceremony and reception. Those tables wouldn't be there, and we'd have white wooden chairs.

 The hallway - we'd have one of the buffets set up here, as well as cocktails and a couple of other foody surprises. The hotel serves lunch Monday - Friday, so these ugly things wouldn't be here during the wedding.
 Stairway where we'd tower the wedding gifts, and table in the corner for the cake.
 The main bar - we're having an open bar. =)
 With the rental, we get 1/4 mile of verandah. There will probably also be a bar station out here. The couches and strange lady would be gone, along with any other plastic furniture. It'd be replaced with wooden tables and chairs and decorated accordingly.
The 2nd ballroom. We'd probably use this for the photobooth, guest book signing, and as more space for mingling during cocktail hour.

I'm excited. It's super southern and charming without feeling old or having that moldy book smell. Andy, the event coordinator, is super sweet/knowledgeable/and helpful. I want to have him around 24/7 to answer my questions. While it's at the top end of the budget, mom & dad talked about it and it's doable.

We'll be making a decision within the week. We have one more place to visit on Sunday.
