Wedding: The Venues

I haven't posted very many pictures for the wedding yet.  I don't want to give too much away, because I want our guests to take everything in and be surprised that day.  However, a lot of our guests aren't from the Willmar, MN area and therefore, unfamiliar with our venues.  So here's a little preview!
Our ceremony will be at the Green Lake Bible Camp Chapel on beautiful Green Lake in Spicer, MN.  We are so excited about the rustic look of this chapel!  And with such natural beauty, we won't have to do much decorating.  I have some things in mind though ;)
 the outside is as beautiful as the inside!

The reception and dance are going to be at The Oaks at Eagle Creek in Willmar, MN.

We reallllly wanted to have our reception on a lake somewhere.  But despite the abundance of lakes in the Willmar area, there are limited options for reception venues on the water.  A couple places that we looked at were already booked for our date (we thought we were being creative getting married 09/10/11, but apparently it's a popular date and things are getting booked well over a year in advance).  We decided on The Oaks!  It's a beautiful location, right on the golf course, with lakes on both sides.  Interesting tidbit: I took Tony to my senior prom seven (!) years ago, which was held at The Oaks (then called Blue Heron on the Green)!

We are so excited!!
