First, I want to mention that I have been trying and failing to take a good picture of the ring that I got of which I am very fond and of which I have not had success taking a non-blurry picture of. I will persist.
Today, we went and looked at our first possible venue for the reception, the Amherst Woman's Club. It is a lovely Victorian that we could rent for the reception, although we would also need to hire a caterer and get rental furniture brought in.

What do you think?
We are thinking of checking out the Hotel Northampton soon.
