It feels really great to say that something has been made official. I booked the church this morning. We are getting married August 14, 2010. Ahh!!! :D
I wanted to share a little bit of what the church looks like and it's history. The Historic Texana Church was built in 1859. It is an adorable one room church with dark wood pews and even a white picket fence outside (!!!). It's located in a park about 15 minutes away from my hometown. This park is full of gorgeous trees and is right next to a lake. Here's a picture of our cute little chapel!!!
It's perfect for our small wedding and gives the simplicity that we both want.
One of the best things about this church??? It costs only $150.00 (+ $50.00 deposit) for an entire day.
Our reception venue, called the Marina Building, is a short walk away. Here, we'll even have access to the deck that goes out onto the lake. Since we're having an evening wedding, we're hoping to decorate the deck with tiny, white lights and have a jazz combo play. I'll get some pictures of this soon!
