wedding planning // the venue & date

I finally have some updates on the wedding planning front! 
We picked a date and booked a venue :)

We live in Columbus, OH...but I have never wanted to get married here...or even in Ohio for that matter. My mum's side of the family is from Scotland and both Aaron and I thought it would be amazing to get married over there in a castle (hello fairytale!) ...but whomp whomp...turns out that would cost an arm, a leg, and basically your first born too...so back the the drawing board it was.

My dad's side of the family is from Asheville, North Carolina. I spent my childhood at my grandma's house in the mountains and love the scenery and just overall vibe of this gorgeous Appalachian town, so I started looking for venues in that area. I found one that I instantly fell in love with, but was broken-hearted to find out they were completely booked for all of 2016. It wasn't meant to be though, so I moved on and ended up finding the equally as amazing venue...Mountain Magnolia Inn

This is a gorgeous late 1800's Victorian Estate tucked into the Blue Ridge mountains with amazing grounds and breath-taking views. 
Just what I was looking for to host my small mountain wedding.

So exciting, I get butterflies every time I think about it! In 9 months from now - on Monday, October 3rd, 2016 - I will be marrying my best friend and soul mate under a 150 year old walnut tree in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina <3
