We picked our venue!!

Finally... after months of looking and researching and disagreeing, we both decided we love the Minnesota Boat Club on Raspberry Island in St. Paul!

The last two venues I shared with you, just weren't the ones. We wanted something fairly cheap, with an inside and outside area. We love being outside and we love patio's so the Boat Club was really perfect. The ceremony is outside next to the river and the reception has an inside area and the cocktail hour is on the patio of the Boat Club, so it's exactly what we were looking for.

I will admit it's a little stressful because it's a little more than we wanted to spend but ultimately we decided you only get married once and we knew we'd regret it if we didn't get the venue we wanted. I'd rather cut back in other areas than pick a place I don't love.

So... I put the deposit down today and our date is officially June 18th, 2016! Let the games begin :)

Here are some photos of the Minnesota Boat Club...
