Bridal Talk Tuesday: We picked our wedding venue!

Linking up with Elizabeth again today for Bridal Talk Tuesday!
And we have some exciting news to share...
We booked our wedding venue today!
We decided to go with venue #2 listed here!
Which is The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel Island.

 We will be having cocktail hour after the ceremony
on the patio out behind the Country club.. just like in 
this picture.

 Our room will be set up similar to this one.
We will be using the white chiavari chairs that our pictured.
We will also be using white tablecloths, the burlap runners pictured
in last weeks bridal talk tuesday, and navy napkins.

 I love how simple and clean the lines are in this 
room! Especially the chairs :)

 Cocktail hour outside.

 And again.. beautiful views of the 2nd hole from
the cocktail hour. We will also have our photo booth set up
out here.

 LOVE this fireplace.
Thoughts of this picture were
drifting into my head today during our 

We will be having a plated dinner so no shrimp on the
dance floor :)

Had to take a picture outside to celebrate :)

We are so excited that our first major step in this whole
process is now complete.
We are also booking our photographer this week
and I'm going to my first bridal show as an 
engaged girl! So exciting, I know :)

Stay tuned next week for a re-cap of that.

I was looking tonight at your post from this week about the Bash Booth and thought the wedding venue pictures you have looked familiar. So I scrolled through some of your wedding planning posts, and sure enough, there is my best friend Darcy!! She is the bride in the lace dress and her husband is a good friend of mine too. I was one of her bridesmaids at their wedding in Feb, and she was in mine in April!!

So so funny. They were married at the Chapel by the Sea and had their reception there. They got another awesome picture in the front of the clubhouse with the sweeping staircases. They were in the middle at the bottom, and the bridal party lined both staircases on either side. Such a gorgeous venue!

Congratulations, have so much fun with the rest of your planning!
