The Search for a Venue: The Winner!

Previously, I listed all of the venues we had visited and what I liked/loved about some, as well as the details I wasn’t so crazy about at others. Now, it’s time to talk a little more about the venue that we fell in love with, and are absolutely thrilled about - The Piazza in the Village!

There are so, so many things I love about this venue. Most importantly, I love how much Mr. Coach likes the Piazza as well! After we had finished our appointment, and visited a few other locations, he would be the one to mention how it just didn’t compare to the presentation we’d been given (shout out to Lorna, who was awesome!!) and the whole atmosphere of the location. Of course, I was thinking the same thing, but something about hearing your fiancé say it out loud just makes it even more true.

The entire venue is elegant & romantic, but doesn’t feel too formal. The chapel could easily be used just the way it is, without any extra decorations added, and it would be stunning. For the reception, we chose the smaller of their two ballrooms, the Village Ballroom, which I believe will be the perfect size and atmosphere for all of our family and friends. It (along with the chapel) has these beautiful chandeliers and the entire place was very carefully designed. Seriously, even the bathrooms were cute! The Piazza will be doing the catering, which I am very excited about. After our visit, I read a lot of reviews and I think we are going to be very happy with the food they prepare.

Tell me some of your favorite things about your wedding venue! Do you love that it can be used just the way it is, or are you looking forward to dressing up a "blank slate" of sorts?
