Good news! I have found, and booked, a reception venue! We are going with a local Four Points Sheraton that offers great wedding packages! We will be having a six-hour reception (first hour as a cocktail hour), and there will be plenty of room for the 200-250 guests that we will apparently be entertaining that night! And also, there will be room for Nicole and Patrice to crash the thing, if they so desire (I hope you were kidding...)!
This is a huge load off my mind because I was having nightmares of not being able to find a place on our chosen wedding date. So now the fun stuff can begin!
I will be sharing more details as they are decided upon!
