We pretty much went back to back checking out venues.. I knew I wanted to get married in June, so that didn’t leave much time to choose a location and set the date!
Venue number two was The Fountains at Wallkill Golf Club. Arthur and I had actually been here about six or seven years ago for a dinner.. Turns out it is currently under a different management then it was back then anyway. The man.. whoops.. I cannot remember his name for the life of me.. was super friendly and very accommodating. He spoke very highly of the food offered and went a bit into his extensive background in the area. We were offered to tab the bar and if the amount was lower than the cost of the open bar, that tab amount could be paid.
The cocktail hour area was nice. The hall was very nice. There were large windows on opposite sides of the room. There was a nice big dance floor. The onsite ceremony area was beautiful. The patio where the ceremony is held over looks the golf course. The ceremony chairs were white folding chairs which looked great.
For the tidbits I did not like so much..
The only bar was located in the cocktail hour area, so the guests would have to leave the reception area to get a drink.. However, the bar was not far from the room by any means and there are waiters/waitress who walk around the reception as well.
Also, the chair covers in the reception are black.. I know this is being super picky but when everything in the room is white for a wedding, I just hate that the chair covers are black.
After seeing just two venues, we couldn’t stop there. Check back next week for venue number three!
