After mulling over several options for wedding and reception halls we still had not decided on a venue. We looked at several local halls that were available, some were very nice and some...not. But they all had one thing in common, too expensive! We had a date that was approaching, but no location! I was chatting with my, soon to be, mother in law and we were tossing about ideas and she said "what about the ferry?"
The ferry?? Brilliant idea! Washington has many lovely ferry boats and hubby and I both loved to ride them. And best of all...they did not charge for using the boat for a wedding!! We only had to pay for the ride. We chose the ferry boat that was closest to our home and one of our favorites. The ferry Rhododendron went from Tacoma, WA to Vashon Island. We would just have everyone walk on the boat, ride across to the island and back. Perfect! We bought every guest a walk on ticket and this was much cheaper than any of the rental halls we had looked at. Plus the scenery would be beautiful!
We got married in late November. See how bundled up my nephew's wife is? And see me with no coat? I was freezing!! But my dress is pretty and I had dyed to match shoes. They lost their color in the rain. :o(
