Our House (is a very very very fine house)

This is "our house"! The owners of the Z Mansion in downtown Tucson, open their home for weddings and special events. On their website they claim that when you plan your event at the Z, the house is yours, it'll always be yours. My initial reaction was: sweet, but yeah right. I mean these people LIVE there, with their kids and they have a bunch of kids.

Then I emailed and asked if I could use their china and servingwear. Answer: Yup, its all yours.

Then I chatted with Tom about my idea to have a walking processional from the ceremony site to the Z, but I was concerened about how to get our older guests around. Answer: Use our van (with insurance of course).

Then I emailed and asked if my mom and I could come by when she was in town. Answer: Yup, the house is yours.

Seriously, when Tom and Em say the house is "ours"- they mean it.

Wow, that's awesome! And the best part is that it's light blue!

The home (mansion) has a beautiful staircase in back that leads to the gardens. I can imagine Jennifer and Darrell coming down to the celebration from there. The gardens are dense and natural...and I also love the carriage house/room off to the side (isn't there a gangster-inspired story about some bullet holes hidden back there?) More best parts include the bride's room and of course the funky groom's room downstairs near the wine cellar. The views from the balcony are so nice! Yes, Z Mansion is a wonderful, home-y and elegant place.
