North Idaho Wedding Venue -- Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center

We had to run errands like crazy today -- we drove back and forth across town to everywhere from the airport to the hospital, and even ended up making a spur of the moment stop at a wedding venue. Nicknamed "The Old Church", the Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center in Post Falls, Idaho was a pleasant surprise.

This venue has the charm of an old church, but with modern updates and a lot more flexibility. There aren't pews in the main room (they call it the celebration hall), but there are hardwood floors, ornate windows, and the entrance even has a belltower! (They even let Dylan ring the bell, so he got a kick out of that.) This just might be our favorite venue so far.

The plus sides are that the building is unique and quaint, they allow you to pick whatever caterer you'd like, you can supply and serve your own drinks, and there are several different little areas for guests to mingle and enjoy themselves.

The down-sides are the distance (it would be a little bit further of a drive for most of our guests), the surrounding neighborhood isn't so great if we wanted any outdoor photo ops, and the chairs they use for events are a little modern and weird. I guess I'd have to look into some chair covers!

Overall, we liked it and it's definitely in the running!

This is the cute little patio around back.

We have visited a couple other venues recently, but I just haven't had time to post about all of them yet. Hopefully things will get less hectic soon and I'll be able to do some new inspiration boards, too!
