I love Venue!*

So yesterday I went to look at the "on paper" venue. The one that I was so excited about and actually nervous about seeing! One of my Bridesmaids joined me as The Mister was at home awaiting the arrival of our new washer and dryer. The venue itself is in St.Lawrence Market, which is probably one of my favorite places to wander around. I was going in blind, hadn't seen any photos and only had a picture in my head based on what people had described to me. I took a bunch of photos and attempted to post this last night but first my camera decided to just get up and die and then my laptop decided to grieve for my camera and just be a jerk. I managed to get these two photos off the dearly departed. So for your viewing pleasure here is what I'm 99.99% sure it my venue................




It opens to the actual Market below, which on Saturday closes at 5pm. The view out those GIANT windows is of a flatiron building AND the CN Tower. It has it's own open kitchen that is pretty much my dream kitchen. Where that railing area is there are a bunch of long rectangle tables with white chairs which you can sort of see in the last picture except shorter. It's newly renovated but still has so much character! AND as my friend joked if things got really crazy we could climb down into the market and eat some cheese!! It's a blank canvas which set my artist brain in motion already I know where I would have the photobooth area, the dessert tables, the dancing! I'm already thinking about what to put on the railings! Big ribbons? floral garland? White lights? Giant helium balloons that take advantage of the soaring market ceilings!
Ok now I have to pick a date! Best part? It has no bookings yet! I get my pick!! Second best part? It's within my budget! I am over the moon!

It's actually really new! It used to be storage!
I heart Mustacho's! I'm pretty much addicted to their Eggplant parmesan! That and Koslik's Mustard place, I am addicted to their mustard!
