I’m not gonna lie, I’ve more or less known what I wanted my wedding to look like waaaaaaay before I was engaged. Fall. Outdoorsy. Evening. Lots of lights. Trees.
So as we started looking for places (umm, the day after we were engaged?) I kind of knew what I had in mind but didn’t know where to start. I googled, and googled…and googled some more! (Is googled a verb? Because, I really think it should be). I found tons of relatively close places, but had to immediately decide:
How far do I want them to drive?
Soo, how much is this place?
Can people stay there? What other accomodations are included?
And so on, and so on. Kind of overwhemling if I think too much about it, but the whole planning thing has been fun, so far. So after a while I have kind of narrowed down the where, the when, and the how many – so that has helped. But the most important right now…WHERE!
I have been looking for places a) out of town, but not too far (like 1-2 hours away tops), b) outdoors, trees, nice weather in the fall, c) secluded. That pretty much puts me up somewhere a little higher in elevation, and most likely…a ranch! There are some cute little ranches in nearby places that I would loooovee to get married at. I love the scenery that I have seen and how seclucded they are. There are a lot of other nice places that don’t really have the seclusion…and while they are nice, I really would rather not have onlookers and passers-by. IfyaknowwhatImean.
Anyywaaays, that’s about where we are right now. We are planning to go to a few places this weekend, so cross your fingers for us. I would love to just set a date 🙂 And if you know of anything near Bakersfield, plus or minus a few hours, that would meet my standards (HAH, standards…I sounds like a snob) please let me know 🙂 🙂
PS, I was messing with my blog layout yesterday…does it look okay? I have never made any sort of banner/header/graphic so that was kind of my first shot. Constructive criticism appreciated 🙂 I kind of think the birds look mean, but who knows. Some people tell me they look snobby 😉
