Let's ALL cross our fingers that this is the last time I EVER mention trying to find a venue. Gawwwd, I am so done with this part. I am beyond ready to get onto the FUN stuff!!!! First off thanks SO much for sticking by me this whole time in my search for the venue, and hopefully at some point, my whole process of designing and planning my wedding. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it all.
OK, take your pick. Obvi they are all great places, but each has some definite pro's and con's, so I have to figure out which I may not be ok with.
Taber Ranch: gorgeous barn and ranch! This one is the cheapest option by far, but there are a few major cons. 1. May not allow fire pits, 2. It is in the middle of no where! There is only one Inn to stay at, and it may not fit everyone?? 3. It is 2 hours away! I don't know how much guests feel about such a FAR drive!
Costanoa: I actually don't have too many pro's or con's with this as Ian just found it last night. It's close and it's cute, but I have no info on pricing and all that.
Calistoga Ranch: LOVE this place so much. This is the extremely over-budget option that I love. But, I must say that this option is not my obsession as much as it sounds. It doesn't have a ranch or barn like I have decided that I wanted. BUT, I still love it. It's gorgeous, but it will cut the guest list and up the budget just a lot!
Thoughts??? Which is your favorite??? Any other Northern California options that you guys have??
PS: Just for kicks, let me show the option I would DIE for....if I wanted to pay the $10,000-$20,000 site fee....plus $250++ per person for food.
