Vendor turned Bride: The Venue

After I came down from my high of getting engaged and setting the date, a little panic set in, how am I going to afford the wedding of my dreams?

When searching for a venue, I knew I needed to go with a place that was pretty and affordable as well as handicap accessible for my disabled father. I was so surprised to find out that there were so many places that were still not 100% handicap compliant. They all had elevators, but the floors had steps up and down to get to the dance floors and food stations/buffets tables. I’m so glad that I had the knowledge to ask these questions on accessibility with wheelchairs, it saved me a lot of time going to see places.

While searching though venues on MAWeddingGuide I found Sandy Burr Counrty Club in Wayland. There facility and pricing was a perfect fit. I was so relieved there was a place that meet all of my wedding needs.


Dan & I spent an afternoon checking out the facility and loved the warm, cozy atmosphere.  It featured a beautiful deck to hold an outdoor ceremony and a gorgeous fireplace inside for the reception. I absolutely loved the option of indoors or outdoor. It’s great for a plan b in case of bad weather.

The dining area and dance floor were all on one level, and that was very important to me.  I later took one of my sister’s to see it as well and we all agreed that it was the place for our wedding! Ahhhh it was a CHECK off the list of things to do. I now needed to chose my caterer.  Sandy Burr allows one of 3 Caterers to try and it most certainly was a tough decision to make!
