If you have not booked your reception area and your wedding is in the Eau Claire, WI area, you HAVE to look at the Florian Gardens.
I recently met the owner, Dave Burke and he runs an AMAZING facility. I so want to shoot a wedding at this place (it's that cool) !!!
Here is a brief blurb from their website.
" Welcome to The Florian Gardens, an elegant reception facility in an exquisite garden setting. With seating for 524 guests inside and 700 in just one of the gardens outside, The Florian Gardens is a versatile site inviting indoor events, outdoor events, or a combination of both. Our building's warm oak wood interior is graced with impressive glass windows overlooking the endless gardens. Each of our three spacious ballrooms conveniently open to the gardens, making the trip from garden ceremony to reception a few footsteps. Ample, soft lights bathe both the interior and the exterior of the building, furthering the enchanting ambiance. We have carefully designed the building and gardens to be a place that makes lasting memories."
