Our venue is already pretty much the best

Yesterday we took Derek's parents out to dinner at the restaurant where we'll be getting married next May. I sent an email to let them know we would be poking around and they made a reservation for us. Boy did they treat us good. They gave us two free appetizers on the house (including mussels) and two deserts. I originally sent the appetizers back because we didn't order them but then they came over and told us they were complimentary. Well then, set those babies right down on the table here. Also, they were great with a food allergy in our dining party.

The food was good and I'm excited that this is our venue.

After dinner I wanted to try to find the spiral staircase that I've seen in wedding photos of the venue. Derek's father found it pretty quickly. I would post a photo here on the blog but since they're all wedding photos I don't want to step on any professional photographers toes by posting their photos. Here's a link to a photo though. Is it silly to be excited to take a photo somewhere? I mean come on it just looks so pretty!

I had a dream last night that I showed up to the wedding without a dress and then all these guests that we did not invite started showing up. One was dressed like she was about to get on a pole in a strip club and I was not pleased. Then I really freaked out when we realized we didn't have wedding rings. We ran over to a market to try to find rings but all they had were these stretchy rings so we just bought them. By the time we got back most of the guests had left but we still got married. I was upset that nothing had gone to plan. Even in your sleep that anxiety can sneak up on you. I know the wedding will be fine. I'm a big planner so there is no way I would "forget" about the rings for the wedding day but if I could not have anymore dreams like that, that would be great.

  1. That staircase is amazing! I almost didn't click the link because didn't want to "invade", but glad I did, since words can't really describe. Your pole-dancer wedding friend could have a heyday.

    That restaurant sounds great too.

    1. It's fine to click on the link but posting a photographers photos on your own blog can be considered "stealing" so I just put the link instead. It really is a beautiful staircase and you're right, words don't do it justice.

    1. Yes! And we're having an afternoon wedding to the lighting should be good.
