I decided to make a Flip Flop Basket for our reception, because I was at a wedding last year and ...
SO thankful to my Bridesmaid, Alison Moore (hey Alison!) for suggesting I check some military bases.
Turns out not only can we have the ENTIRE building for less than $1500, but it is gorgeous!!!
My FH Patrick was so wonderful to go and take pictures, walk through each room so I could see what it looks like (since I'm 4 hours away in Atlanta) and I fell in love with the venue.
It already has chandeliers, a gorgeous fireplace in another room, and talking with the coordinator she sent me the picture to show that mood lighting using uplighting will be a breeze to set up, and the space is ample enough to more than accommodate all of my guests!
What's even better, I learned there is a Hotel available on the premises (all of 20 minutes drive from the ceremony site WITH traffic) that is available to civilians.. because my stepdad is a veteran, he gets a special rate so now my family has a place to stay for the week!!
So happy everything is coming together!
