Venues near Us, and other cool places..

Picking a venue for your special event can be overwhelming, just like searching for a photographer, take your time to research a place that will fit your needs and serve the most fabulous food.

Think about the experience you want to have. Maybe you want someplace small and intimate along the river.... maybe you want a big ballroom in the city or at the best country clubs... Usually your budget will narrow it down, but ultimately for the traditional full day experience, the best venues will have it all. My ideal wedding venue:

First, a suite for the bride to get ready is ideal, second picturesque spots for the First Look and portraits, an outdoor ceremony site (with shade), and the food must be many steps beyond your normal chicken marsala. There are so many venues to choose from, and also a lot of uncoventional ways you can have an inexpensive wedding and save the rest for the honeymoon! For example, having an amazing BBQ catered with your best friends and family in a big backyard, or at a park pavillion by the lake is a wonderful, affordable way to do your own venue.
