Our (Second) Wedding Venue

25 April 2012 1,627 views 12 Comments

When Adam and I got married on Christmas Day, 2011, we were already in the process of planning our wedding for October, 2012. After weeks of visiting dozens of venues, we had chosen one that felt truly special to us, and had hired a wedding planner. We took a hiatus from planning “Wedding B” as we started calling it in order to focus on planning “Wedding A” — which included many ups and downs in the month that we worked on pulling it together. As you know if you read my post about it, it couldn’t have been more beautiful.

After taking a month or so off after “Wedding A,” we have spent the past few months making plans and tough decisions for Wedding B — making a guest list, organizing hotel accommodations, finding a rehearsal dinner space,  talking to potential officiants, budgeting, etc. There is still so much to do to pull it together, but we are so excited about the venue we have chosen for both our ceremony and reception.

It’s officially called Ceres Park, but it’s better known as the location of Jester King Brewery. Right now, there’s one bathroom in the brewery, where we will host the cocktail hour, and no bathrooms at the pavilion, where the reception will be held. However, they are in the process of building a pizza restaurant right next to the pavilion, and turning an old Airstream trailer into bathrooms for both the restaurant and the pavilion.

I can’t wait to see how it all looks when it’s set up for a party.
