It was an immensely hot day, yet Andy and I made the most of our time. After church and brunch we went to visit a reception venue in Annandale. It was a very lovely space. The venue was part of a golf course. I normally don’t picture myself getting married at such a location, but the person who contacted me was very pleasant, and was willing to meet with us on short notice. The space turned out to be very helpful with what we need, and although I’m not using the space for the actual ceremony, I was told that I could use the bridal suite to prepare myself for the wedding, then head to the church, then return for the reception. It’s something for me to think about. There’s one more space we’re checking out, but I would love to make a decision about a venue very soon.
When we came home, I sat outside for a little while. It still felt humid, but not as oppressive as it did a few hours earlier. It felt so nice to just sit and relax, and hear the music of the birds. It was a sense of peace that I really needed.
