Reintroducing Our Venue

Do you guys remember when I shared that we had finally found our dream venue? Well, since my photos weren’t of top notch quality (since iPhone plus rain does not equal pretty pictures), I decided that before I can move forward with more of our planning details, I had to share photos that would do our venue some justice.

This is the ceremony space, and depending upon the number of guests we have, we may choose to use a similar seating arrangement! It may be a tad difficult considering the way the gazebo is set up, however I’m confident that we’ll figure out something great. :)

The barn is where we’ll be holding the reception (and possibly the ceremony, depending on the weather), so I’m thrilled that these lights and paper lanterns are now included in our wedding package! The way the photo below is set up is very close to how we’ll set up the venue for the big day. The only difference is that instead of a head table, we’re going to have a sweetheart table (more about that coming up soon!).

So now, with the much better quality photos—what do you think!? Can you see how we’re planning to use minimal decor to pull off the rustic, romantic vibe we’re going for?
