BIG NEWS today folks...

we have a wedding venue! 

Glory, glory hallelujah! Feast your eyes on The O'Donnell House. The prettiest place in South Carolina if you ask me, but I may be biased. 


After tons of searching, read about my venue woes here, we finally found the perfect place! It is in Sumter which is about an hour and 10 drive for us and our guests coming from Columbia and about an hour and 50 drive for our guests coming from Aiken. 

I hated to make EVERYONE drive but this place was just so perfect and so us, we couldn't let it pass us up! 

Mom was actually the one who discovered this place and she fell in love with the pictures and insisted we set up an appointment and that we did! Wanda, the owner, was such a sweet person and so easy to work with! I really am looking forward to working with her for our big day and the house is gorg. I mean a spectacular ballroom and the rooms in the house are to die for...I wish this was our real house, haha!

So excited that we have finally set on a venue, which means we have a date...

September 21, 2013. 

Less than 8 months away people! I am over the moon. I am so happy and relieved to cross "venue" off our to-do list. Now on to the search for a photographer so we can book our engagement photos here in a couple months.

Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed and listening to our my stressful freak outs over a venue. The good Lord took good care of us! All of this is becoming so real and to have an actual countdown going makes me so happy! I can not wait to be Josh's wife, that is one good man.
