Carey and I had an appointment this mornng with Leu Gardens to reserve our wedding and reception. Yes; we’re having the wedding and reception both at Leu Gardens! Sunday October 11th, 2009 at 10:00am! It’s all very exciting.
The wedding will take place under the great oak tree in front of the plantation/museum house.
It’s really beautiful there; you get such a great feel for “old” Florida. However, you know how unpredictable the weather is in Florida. Should a hurricane or storm come through on the day of our wedding, we will be forced to move indooors. Fortunately, Leu Gardens has a very nice “alternate” site for inclement-weather weddings:
We’re also having our reception at Leu Gardens. We’ve reserved the Camellia Room for our reception. It’s a gorgeous room, overlooking the lake and the gardens.
Like I said; it’s all very exciting. We’re going to have a great wedding and reception. Soon, we’ll start planning a honeymoon!
Hey Ron…looks like you and I will have the same anniversary. I was married to my husband Steve on October 11, 1997. How exciting for you guys…
Coincidence that we’ll share an anniversary or some cosmic significant event? We’ll never know – but very cool!
I went to a wedding and reception there…oh, 8 years ago, I think. It was gorgeous–and also the first time I’d ever heard anyone play a harp (a bit surreal!) But it was also June, and the humidity had me convinced that makeup was melting right off my face in the rose garden.
