Joplin Adventure: Part 2

As promised, here is part two of our Joplin Adventure.  When we woke up on Saturday morning (early for Sam and I, but not so much for Cameron) we headed straight for Springhouse Gardens.  I was really excited to show Sam our reception site, and be able to hear all of her great ideas for the space.

This is the view when you first walk in to the venue through the gates.  We are going to use this area as the dance floor.

The top picture is where we are going to place the head table as well as close family members (ie: my mom because she is cool).  The bottom picture looks behind the venue where we are going to have yard games.  You can also see the springhouse in the back along with the beautiful water fall!  Pictures out here are going to be amazing!

To the left of the dance floor area is a large greenhouse building.  I am so excited to decorate this space!  This may be the future home of our mason jar chandelier.....

This room is also really cool because it has a giant chalkboard wall!  Sam and I got so excited thinking of the possibilities for this wall.  And if you look to the left in the picture you will see a large rolling counter that we are going to use as a drink station.

In addition to the large rolling counter, Springhouse has some really fun greenhouse pieces that we are free to use at the event.  We are thinking of filling the two tubs in the top picture with ice and using it as a soda bottle cooler.  The two carts will be fun for flowers and the cocktail hour.  And I am really excited about the wire structure (I do not know what to call it) on the left side in the bottom picture.  We are thinking of hanging our favors on these!

The area above is where we are thinking of putting the buffet table.  It is a nice long area with room enough for people to on either side easily.

That concludes our Joplin Adventure!  I hope you all enjoyed getting to see more of where our wedding and reception will take place, and as always send me your ideas!
