The Choice

Last week I gave you the venues we had narrowed it down to. This week I'm revealing our decision. Some of you got it right, but the venue we picked was...
Houmas House
Houmas House!

Of course I can't make the reveal without showing more pictures of the site, this way you'll fall in love at least a little more like me.
In the Gardens
This is inside the reception area looking out to where we'll have our cocktail hour.
Fountain behind Houmas House
This is the original Houmas House china, which they've had remade and will be served on to look something like this.
Eggs Creole
Although this was taken at a brunch eaten in their restaurant. Since we're having an evening reception we're not expecting to have any hollandaise sauce.
Dragonfly Chairs
Of course I can't show all these pictures of the plantation without at least one photo from an actual wedding there, right? Didn't think so!

Now that you know our final choice, please join in my excitment and let me know what's your favorite part of our venue, based on course on the pictures I've shared.
