Venue Crush

May 15, 2010

How stunning is the Farnsworth House in Plano, Illinois. I have a full-blown venue crush on this place…

Despite the impracticality of having a separate ceremony and reception venue that Isaiah and I have already discussed…we are smitten with this house. How beautiful is it, really? It was created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929 and is just…unbelievably stunning.

Worth breaking our no-inconvenience different ceremony and reception venue rule?

    I like how open it is….is there actual rooms, or is it just a ceiling? How much will it cost you? How many people can it fit? All very important q’s πŸ™‚ But I do love it πŸ™‚

    Oh that is cool!

    We (ok, I–I keep feeling like I should use the first person plural to indicate how this is a joint venture but let’s be honest, the majority of decisions have been set by myself) decided early on that ceremony and reception being the same place would cut down on so much hassle, plus save money on transportation and a photographer’s time, etc. so I understand where you’re coming from there.

    Are you having the ceremony in a church or other specific place? Any reason not to have the ceremony and reception together here? Otherwise it would just be weighing together the different factors of cost/convenience/time, I suppose.

    @KWu & Tanya (hi!): It will be less expensive than having the ceremony at the same place, but it maxes out, even outdoors, at 50 people. Our reception is looking at 100-150 people…so some people would be invited to the reception and not to the ceremony (which, honestly, is fine). Having people trek out from Plano to Chicago (an hour and a half away) from ceremony to reception is a lot to ask, I think.

    I am all about convenience for the guests and for ourselves…but Isaiah just said “It would actually give us a chance to take a break and make sure the day doesn’t just blur right past us..” which is nice.

    @KWu: I couldn’t agree more!
