In my last post I shared with you the journey that was our venue search. It was tumultous and draining to say the least, but I believe it paved the way for me to actually appreciate our venue even more. To realize what we found and how to truly love and enjoy it. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Inn Marin:
a photo of the court yard where we will be having our cocktail hour. adorable, no?
As soon as we were safely out of ear shot in the car I told Mr. Yankee that this absolutely had to be our venue and that if the price was even somewhat doable we were going to move forward. I felt so valued and understood that I thought no other place could do us justice. Mr. Y agreed saying that he thought it was a good fit and that hopefully the price was right. And oh my goodness, was the price ever right!! When Lora sent us our price quote I nearly fell out of my chair in excitement. You mean we can have a wedding, with a served dinner, drinks, linens and a day of coordinator without breaking the bank?! **SQUEE**
I immediately emailed her in response and proposed marriage.. uh, I mean asked what she needed to proceed with the date. And so after what seemed like a lifetime of venue searching, we found the best spot for us.
How did you find your venue? Did you know right away is was where you were going to get married? Or did you have to warm up to the idea?
