Hotel Vintage/Pazzo Ristorante

October 13, 2011

I almost didn’t write a post about this one, just because I’ve pretty much already written it off.  My parents stayed here last time they were up to visit me, and don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful hotel.  The size of the spaces for the ceremony and reception are perfect for the size of our wedding.  It would be very intimate feeling.  But the ceremony is in the wine cellar, and while very unique and a cool ambiance, it’s just a step up from a basement.  The reception room is on the second floor, and has ridiculously low ceilings and these windows that start at the floor and only go halfway up the wall.  It’s a little too claustrophobic.  There were a couple things I like though: the food and alcohol would be amazing.  It’s all serviced by the restaurant and you can tell they pride themselves in it.  I didn’t take any pictures, so here’s some I took from their Facebook page.

This is a little cocktail bar they would set up right outside of the reception room.  Look how ugly the carpet is.

It’s charming, and could definitely be made a lot prettier with more decoration, but I don’t if you’d be able to do enough to really make it seem anything but a pretty basement.

There are definitely more flattering pictures of the reception room, but I couldn’t get over the ugly carpet and super low ceilings.  The food is ridiculously expensive too (although if I had unlimited funds, it looked delicious!)

Unrelated to the actual venue, I found a really cool idea for guest gifts from one of the photos on their Facebook page.

The couple had actually grown all of these basil plants for their guests.  I think it’s really personal and sweet because you’re actually putting the effort into growing the plants for your guests.  I’ll have to keep in mind and maybe steal the idea.
