We paid the deposit on our hall for the dinner and reception on Friday, so it’s now officially official – we’re getting married on July 7, 2012! We chose Beverly Gardens in Denmark, Wisconsin for two main reasons: the food and the price. You really can’t beat either with this place. 🙂 Plus, I used to work as a banquet waitress at Beverly Gardens when I was in high school, so it’s kind of exciting to be on the other end of the deal this time.
With that out of the way, we’re now looking at venues nearby (either the Green Bay area or more towards Kewaunee) where we can hold an outdoor ceremony. I’m adamant about having the wedding outside, but we also need to have an alternative in case it rains, so we’re looking for somewhere with a chapel or enclosed space for a “backup plan.” Right now, our front runners are Pamperin Park and gazebo at the SSCM Faith Chapel in Eaton, but we’re definitely open to suggestions at this point.
Other than that, I’m beginning the search for a photographer, florist, baker, and all of those other necessary people that you need for the day and have to book pretty far in advance. We would love any suggestions of great vendors (or those to stay away from!) in Northeast Wisconsin, especially near Green Bay or Kewaunee. All in all, I’m super excited that things are starting to move forward!
