Wedding Recap - Church Selection!

The church decision came in a weird way. Most of my family and most of his family lived about 45-60 minutes from each other and we were hoping to find some middle ground. We found a simple reception hall at a great price first and then the hunt came for a church. Jared and I had both grown up in churches we no longer attended, and had just found a church we both liked but weren't quite ready to call "home" yet. One day after we'd stopped into the reception hall to check it out, we just went driving around. Seriously. We looked for parks, churches, anything in the area that might work.
And low and behold, we almost passed this church up because it came outta' nowhere... just 2 miles down the road from our reception hall! It was a beautiful, older church that looked just about the right size so we wandered in. Yep, we wandered into a random church on a Saturday afternoon. A few women were in the building, setting up for what looked like a baby shower and they were SO nice and answered our questions. They didn't act like we were crazy either for wandering in and saying... "Uh, yeah, we're trying to find a church to get married in. Do you guys rent yours?" Whew! ;)

We were SO excited to find this church. It was beautiful inside and out-- plus there was even a covered bridge out back which proved to be an AMAZING backdrop for pictures!!

The church was BEAUTIFUL and was the perfect central location for everyone!
