Wedding Venue booked... Wedding Journey Update

Quick update for you all, I have received tons of messages, tweets and emails that you wanted to come along with me on my wedding journey, so I will be posting some snippets and sharing some fun details.

My first to-do, and quite honestly the one that was stressing me out the most is checked off and completed. The venue.  

I had head very different wedding scenarios in my head that I loved equally.  A beach wedding with a flower crown in the bridesmaids hair, and old rustic barn but flamed out and an old Mansion. 

I crossed off the beach idea because I hate hot weather and sweating (Hello, frizzy hair!), so I didn't want to chance it. Additionally, I LOVE fall, true fall. the crisp air, the colors of the leaves, the smell, everything. I was born in November, so maybe I am biased. However, that left me with the two above.

I didn't get very far in my search because the second venue I found I absolutely fell in love with.  I got that gut feeling that I just knew it was the place.  As soon as I walked in. I just knew. Then my Fiancee said, "This is where we are getting married" and I knew.  And mind you, it was pouring rain and I still fell in love. 

It is an old mansion on the north shore of Long Island overlooking the Long Island sound and lighthouse.  It is a very private area and surrounded my woods.  It is perfect. 

The arched always and rooms were the cocktail hour will take place.

Some outside details:

The theme I am going to go for I think is that feeling of all white magical wedding. However, I really am not there yet.  I am just so thrilled that this is locked in and now I can kind of sit back relax and enjoy! 

Andddd.... The date is set, November 1st 2014. 

Would love to hear what all of your weddings were like! Any recommendations?
