Wedding Wednesday: A Leap of Faith

Let me start out by saying that I am fully confident that our venue choice was the best wedding planning decision we have made up until this point. That being said, we took a HUGE leap of faith in choosing it. When we found Buffalo Lodge, our venue space was merely a blueprint. We saw "inspirational" photos for the building, but nothing had been finalized. Despite that, we just fell in love with the atmosphere and story behind the location, and signed the contract without looking at any other venues. And I am SO glad we did because the venue is coming together SO perfectly. The venue space has a top notch bridal boudoir and a groom's cabin, which is just the icing on the cake! It is just about finished and we are heading out to see it this weekend for the first time since the construction started. We can't wait!

Here's the story behind the venue: Owners, Amy & Michael Billings, purchased the 200 acre ranch in 2008, leaving behind city-life to fully indulge in nature. Dreamers at heart, they often imagined buffalo wandering among the lush pastures. In 2011, they took the plunge and acquired a young herd and feel blessed and honored to provide a home for such majestic, awe-inspiring creatures.

After witnessing the joy that visits brought to family and friends, they expanded their vision to include Buffalo Lodge, a premier destination for weddings, retreats, and getaways. The response went beyond expectations and led to the decision to build a state-of-the-art reception facility featuring green technology. The Roosevelt at Buffalo Lodge opens May 2014 and offers guests all the luxury they expect while being sensitive to the beauty that surrounds it.

Magical right?! I can't wait to get married in here in LESS THAN 2 MONTHS!!!!

  8. Choosing a venue (for us, venueS), was definitely the hardest part of wedding planning! Finding spaces that would hold our guests, that would have the right atmosphere, AND that would keep us in budget was so so difficult. It looks like you chose a beautiful venue!
