You may or may not know that we booked our wedding venue (and photographer) before we were "officially" engaged. The way we saw it, we'd been talking about getting married for years so the "official" engagement coincided more with actually announcing things rather than making wedding plans. So no, the proposal was not a Big Surprise but not having any input into my own future before we started making wedding plans would not have flew. I digress.
But anyway, we booked The Berry Barn near Saskatoon for our venue without looking around too much. We went out there in the spring before anything was blooming to check it out and decided it was the place we wanted. I'd never seen it in the summer, or with the tents set up, so we sort of took a gamble. Then a couple days ago my sister Megan went out there with some friends and started worrying that it might be too small of a venue and would be a terrible venue if it rained. I wasn't too phased but still a little worried that maybe we had jumped the gun and should have shopped around a bit more.
BUT yesterday Allyson and I went to check it out, and all my worries evaporated and turned into excitement. I get to get married and have a big party in this awesome space!
Inside the tent - definitely not set up for a wedding... see the next picture from the Berry Barn's website:
A little better I'd say.
Yayyyyyy what a nice venue! And even if it rains and we have to stay in the tent, I don't care. I would rather wear rubber boots than heels anyway.
