So Mike and I were supposed to visit Perona Farms today as a possible venue choice, under the recommendation of his parents (who have been to a few weddings here). But, we slept through our appointment. Upon waking two hours after our scheduled appointment time, we realized that we really didn’t have any true interest in visiting this venue, based mostly on the pictures posted on their website, which made the Farm look both too fancy for our tastes (in that typical banquet hall style) and like a scene from The Godfather.
Based on this experience, I have formulated my Wedding Advice for the Day: Despite positive recommendations from family or friends, if even the pictures of a venue don’t spark an interest (considering that the pictures would be the “best” views of a venue, at least in the venue’s opinion), don’t even bother checking it out–there’s not enough time in the day to spend on places that “may” be of interest.
On that note, here’s a brief list of some of the places Mike and I are interested in checking out:
- Prallsville Mill (Stockton, NJ)
- Dumbo Arts Center (Brooklyn, NY)
- Galapagos Art Space (Brooklyn, NY)
- Triumph Brewery (Princeton, NJ)
- The Noyes Museum (Oceanville, NJ)
- Rutgers Gardens (New Brunswick, NJ)
- B Bar and Grill (New York, NY)
- Union Hall (Brooklyn, NY)
If anyone has any advice on any of the above locations, I’d be more than appreciative to hear it!
