We've made a decision

Yep. We're going with the place that was my LEAST favorite of the three. BUT after visiting, talking about our options with the wedding planner, and meeting Melvin the BEST custodian ever, we settled on having the ceremony and reception at the North Augusta Municipal Center. 

We had to move the date to March 17 (St. Patty's Day...blerg) but it will be okay.
Entrance. We've essentially rented the whole 4th floor = ballroom and huge terrace.
The atrium on the 4th floor.

They don't provide the caterer, but they provide all the china and flatware, which is alarmingly perfect for our color scheme.
The reception ballroom - we've got big plans for the decorations. I just don't know what they are yet.

And now for the exciting UNIQUE flavor - the wedding ceremony is going to take place in the council chamber. I'd never even CONSIDERED having the ceremony in a room like this, but when the podium and desks and desk chairs and nametags are taken out, and it's decorated nicely with an altar and flowers, etc...I think it's going to be AWESOME. And nobody will have a problem seeing. =)
I know it's hard to visualize right now - trust me. I suck at visualizing. But I think it's going to be great.
The boys will have a nice room to get ready in pre-ceremony. So will the girls, but I didn't take a picture of that room for some reason.
Melvin the awesome custodian showed us how the fancy blinds work and how he will dim all the lights except the main one for our first dance...haha.

I have another exciting update tomorrow that you fans of option #2 from Thursday will enjoy - also about the big day.


  1. so pretty, that's awesome that they provide the china, the freaking rentals are so expensive that will be a huge save. hope you feel a little less anxious now!

  2. Oh my gosh lovely! I think that it is a great venue! Really, when it all comes down to it it is all about friends and family and nothing else matters! :)
