I wanted to show you guys the mansion where we’re having our reception, it is really beautiful and requires little to no decorating.

This is the entryway to the mansion.  I should’ve taken pics of the doors…they’re amazing!  Gigantic, wide, old wooden doorways…awesome.  Anyhoo, the mansion was around back in Abe Lincoln’s days and has been restored to look like it did back then.  That staircase could be a nice place for some wedding pics, huh?

This is the Bride’s Room…where me and the ladies will freshen up.  It’s a pretty big room with a large bath attached.

This is the Groom’s Room.  Clearly the place is staged to look like it was back in the day and it’s impressive in person.  The Mister had a nice idea to share a bottle of champagne with the wedding party right away when we get to the mansion and before we face the crowds…that’ll probably happen here.

Just a random hallway to show how things are decorated there.

This is a nice bay window that’ll be where the DJ sets up.  For the first hour and a half, this room will be for sit down eating and will turn into a dance floor later on in the night.

The mansion sets up the outside patio as well, it’s really nice and they’ve got twinkle lights on all of those bushes so that it’ll look pretty at night.  There’s a wrap-around porch on the other side that I didn’t take a picture of.

I feel like I didn’t do justice to the mansion with my pics, mostly because I’d just gotten my camera and didn’t know how to work it well when I took these…and because it’s the little details that make the space so gorgeous.  The light fixtures, the bathroom fixtures, the woodwork, the decorations…it really is a nice place.  Plus they’re letting me bring in my own caterer and my own alcohol and bartender.

That’s our spot…and I’m excited.

    That’s a gorgeous venue, and you’re right you don’t have to decorate it at all. The character speaks for itself.
