The overall vibe of your venue has to feel right. We have planned weddings in ballrooms, backyards, castles, barns, farms, you name it! When you step into your venue space you should just have that gut feeling that it’s right for you. Check out every detail on your venue tour so you have a full view of the place. The same goes for an outdoor space. Check out where you’ll be taking pictures, how the cocktail reception space feels, and details that will be part of your photographs.

What’s included?

Knowing what’s included and what you’ll have to book/buy on your own is a huge factor when choosing your wedding venue. Some venues will offer catering, alcohol, decor, rentals, and more. Other venues may require you to put in more work but open you up to choosing your own vendors. Decide what route you want to take when deciding on your wedding venue.
