More Venues!

February 14, 2009 at 8:43 PM (Laura's Wedding) (, , , , , )

The search for the perfect wedding venue continues- I know, we’re slow.  This last week we visited a few more locations that were fairly promising.

The first was One Eleven.

This is a relatively new venue on Broadway downtown in Nashville.  It’s an incredibly versatile site which has done mostly corporate events thus far (They’re having their first wedding in May 2009).  What’s great about this space is, well, the view!

The View

The View

Lots of great downtown city scape to look at and the ability to move in or out of doors depending on the weather.  The observation deck is completely uncovered (but can be tented) allowing guests to mingle in the open air and look out over the city.  The Patio is roofed, but one side is open to the air as well (again, this can be covered should the weather prove inclement) and there is plenty of room for either dancing or setting up tables for eating and chatting.

The Patio- Glass on one side, open air on another!

Sandwiched between the observation deck and the patio is the penthouse- this is only completely closed room in this venue- it is completely walled with large glass windows to allow the indoor people a clear view of everything going on in either outdoor location and there are lots of glass doors that could be left open to provide easy traffic flow (this would however ruin the air conditioning! ;)).

What was especially nice (aside from the space itself) was how calm and welcoming the Aaron Mayo was when he showed us the space.  He was completely open to doing anything we could think of and welcomed any new ideas we had on how best to use the space.  It was so pleasant to have someone who was open to anything and willing to help as much or as little as we wanted.  Thanks Aaron!

That was our favorite of the day!

Currently our favorites are:

The aVenue (we still love the warm wood of that space!) and One Eleven.

Thoughts?  We’re looking for ideas, so any suggestions would be useful!  We’re really hoping to come to a final decision within the next week or so.  And on Monday- the quest for the dress begins…

Wish me luck!!
