Welcome the newbie

Hi, my name is Lina and I'm a newbie at this bride stuff. Here's my intro:

Name: Lina
Age: 30
Wed-day: October-ish
Wed-partner: Andy
Wed-place: Around Boston
Wedsite: still trying to decide on a domain name...
Wed-deets: I'm not sure what those are, but I'll add that this is not an actual wedding, but a reception after an elopement.

I also have a question for you: I'm not in New England right now, so all of this is being planned remotely, but I'm looking for a venue. My needs are:
- wheelchair accessible!
- within 1-2 hours drive from Boston, preferably to the South or West (nearby Cape OK)
- accommodates about 100 people in a single dining room with some room for dancing
- allows me to bring my own catering and booze, doesn't require use of their vendors
- has a sound system where I can plug in an iPod and a microphone
- is within 15-20 minutes of some reasonably-priced hotels
- has parking, hopefully
- is surrounded by something picturesque (but hopefully not a garden since I'm allergic to a lot of flowers)

I would prefer not to book a hotel or a restaurant since they tend to have their own catering. I was kind of hoping for something original, like a library, gallery or a museum, but I haven't lived in the area in a while and I don't know what's available.

TIA!

Lyman estate won't allow groups less than a certain number. It would have been nice - it's right next to my parents' house!

I also recommend Stonehurst (not where I had mine, but a lovely choice). Maybe across the road from it at Lyman Estates would also work.

Thanks, already checking out Stonehurts, but Lyman won't work - it's the first place we checked out and they have a minimum count we're not meeting.
