Deciding where to have your wedding is based on more than a few things -- like religious affiliation, the guest list and the time of year, just to name a few. While it's been a tradition for couples to get married in the bride's church, nowadays weddings can be held almost anywhere a couple desires.

Indoors versus outdoors, a trendy restaurant versus a banquet hall; ideas and places are limitless.

We had our ceremony at the outdoor pavilion at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Bayside. It is a great outdoor venue with a view of the lake. You can also rent the building for ceremonies and receptions as well. Our reception was held at Roots restaurant. To quote some of our guests "Best Wedding food ever!" How can you beat that?
