Our Wedding {The Venue}

Feb 11, 2013

Now that I conquered my first week at a new job, I think I can finally get back into the swing of things.
I'll start back with a little post about our wedding venue.
We got married at Los Paloma in Benton, Louisiana.
This event center was actually a skeet shooting range, that over time accidentally turned into a really popular wedding venue.
We wanted to have the ceremony and reception at the same place, and Los Paloma was ideal because it was large enough that we could move the ceremony inside at last minute if the weather didn't cooperate.
(Louisiana weather in November could range from 30-90 degrees) 
Thankfully, we were lucky enough to have perfect weather!
It was a sunny day with the afternoon temperature being around the 70s. 
We had the ceremony on the back porch, between the building and the pond, and we timed it perfectly with the sunset happening behind the pond (for good photography lighting, of course)
Stephanie (the photographer) and I actually went out to the venue the week before the wedding to plan timing of the ceremony with the sunset/lighting. 
. . . more coming later this week on the details and table decor!
