I always wanted a tree house!

Nothing sucks more than receiving an information package from a venue and reading such wonderful things as...

"This two-story event tree house can accommodate up to 50 guests for full service dining on the lower deck. The fully heated and air-conditioned upper deck can accommodate up to 10 guests for seated dining."

Yes you read that right..a tree house! A tree house that holds 50 guests meaning if we went for a small wedding of 45 it would be perfect! This venue is so us for so many reasons! One of them being I used to love climbing trees and always dreamed of having a tree house! It would set the whole theme and give me direction! I want to get married in a tree house!

and

"We are happy NOT to charge you the following:
Cake Cutting Fee
Corkage Fee
Gratuities"

Then I scroll down and see things on the menu such as...
Mac and Cheese Popovers, Potato Skins stuffed with Cheese and Bacon,Mini Croque Monsieurs, Sliders: Mini Veggie or Beef Burgers AND a whole "Gastro Pub" list of Hors d’Oeuvres:

Roast Beef on Miniature Yorkshire Puddings
Bangers and Mash Hors d’Oeuvre – Sausage and Mash on a Potato Crisp
Miniature Bacon Sandwiches
Ploughman’s Lunch Skewer – Cheese, Pickle, Onion and Tomato
Cornish Pasties – Light Vegetarian Curry Filling
Chip Buddies – White Bread and Chips

Yes I realise the above Gastro Pub Hors d'Oeuvres probably don't sound too yummy to some (or very weddingy) but were both Anglophiles and practically everyone we know is as well. The Mister had actually just moved back from there when we met! It's also the only place we've been on vacation to over seas!

The person who responded even said that the chef would have a lot of fun incorporating our beer into the meal!

Of course it seems to be out of our price range. But it might work and I think when The Mister saw that they did mini versions of gastro pub foods AND that they would let us bring our own beers in he might have been a bit more sold on it!

Having a venue like this would be my dream. I could have my first dance, something that I would have to forfeit if we had a small city hall wedding with a restaurant dinner afterwards.
Really they had me at tree house!
