our venue's views

Was cleaning out my camera this weekend and found a handful of images from SnowBowl that I took earlier in the year. Tommy and I decided to make one last trek up the mountain to check out a couple things, hang with my fam, and spy on our venue. Remember my lil fit about them taking the big beautiful stone fireplace down??? Well, I wanted to see what the end result was.

And it looks fine - the space is bigger...and now the dancing will just have to be up in everyone's face. No big. And the lights stay...which kinda rocks on saving us set-up headache. *note:  you can see the rustic looking chair on the far left....they have been replace with "normal" chairs...which broke my heart a little bit.  And the intimate rustic tables that seat 6...they  have been replaced with modern wedding banquet tables...big round things that require tablecloths.  I didn't want to use tablecloths.  BUT - it will go will still work...and it will still be lovely.  Just a lil different than we imagined.

We are not getting married here because we love the physical structure of's not really anything to get excited about's a simple and utilitarian ski lodge...not an extravagant resort.

But the views. Ohmygosh the views.

    I did not exactly have a great attitude about the table and chairs...I pissed and moaned about it to almost anyone within earshot for a few days. Now I'm a bit settled...and I realize it's not the hugest deal in the world. Though...I'm still a lil bummed.

  5. Yea! Beautiful Snowbowl!!!

  6. eeks. The chairs. Um, that's the reason a lot of brides book that place. They don't get it obviously. I'm sad about the fire place as well. It was a huge thing in the middle of the room but also a "feature" and kinda cool BUT it was weird to have the dance floor on the other side of the room. I bet it seems HUGE now.
