Blue Stained Glass Ceiling

Over the weekend, we checked out the venue where Jess will be having her wedding reception.  It was really a lovely place, and we sampled different foods the whole time, which made it even more delightful.  Here are a few pics of the venue to share with you.

This was the walkway to the garden area.

Although Jess will get married in the church, the brides have an option to get married at this sweet gazebo that is in the center of the garden area.

This waterfall, with its flowing aqua water, was pretty.

As we walked inside the reception area, I noticed the ceiling and light fixtures right away.  Can you see the faces on each side of the stained glass on the second pic?

We looked at three tables to get ideas for the seating.  Jess liked the candles and the soft roses on this one.

There was a wedding dress on the floor for show, and we thought the lace was exquisite.

We saw the dance floor fun!

As we were leaving, we walked out to the garden area again and some of the trees had white balls dangling from them.  It must look nice all lit up at night.

I think these are Camellia buds?

It was really a beautiful venue, and Jess got ideas for photographers and DJ's and table settings.  I'm glad we took a day trip there to see what it was all about.

Jess will be dreaming
of her special day.

You're living (again) a wonderful experience that must be a sweet blessing for your caring and loving heart.
The place is exquisite and I'm sure with the lovely ideas Jess will add it will become magical and dreamy.
Wishing you all the best in all the preparations and plans ahead.
So excited and happy for you!

PS - yes, those are camelias and are exactly the color of mine which already bloomed.

Dear Sheri,
I am so glad that you shared this special moment with us, I know your Mother's heart is overflowing with mixed emotion.
I cried at all four of my children's weddings-tears of joy, sadness that an era of life was over, gladness that they were able to take flight and embrace the beauty of it...oh, you know.
This venue is exquisite and Jess will be the loveliest of brides.
Thank you again, dear friend, for sharing this special part of your life with us.

Good morning my friend! I am late, but it's the countdown to FINAL EXAMS so I am rushing every morning, rushing home at night with no time to spare. How gorgeous is this place, so California with its white stucco, Spanish architectual influence and lush gardens! This will be the perfect place to make wedding memories! Much love to you all, Anita

This must have been so fun and exciting. It actually reminds me very much of the venue where I got married. I look forward to hearing more about Jess's wedding. The gazeboo would be such a pretty place to get married.

This is SUCH a special time for you all Sheri, filled with hopes and dreams. It goes so fast, as you know, so enjoy it and please keep sharing.

The venue looks stunning, and I know she's not getting married there, but I'm a huge sucker for gazebos.

All the best to you all!
