Having trouble deciding where to celebrate your big day now that you’re engaged? I’ve collected a few of my favorite places to photograph weddings to give you some ideas!
Backyard BBQ - Have a big backyard? Host friends and family at your place! Rent a tent, tables and chairs and set up a BBQ station to serve your guests. Set up lawn games like giant Jenga, Twister and Horseshoes and have a fun-filled night rocking out to your favorite local band.
Campground - Some campgrounds, like Camp KOA in Middleboro, will allow you to rent out their entire campground for your wedding! Set up your friends in cozy cabins for a night of fun, marshmallow roasting and outdoor adventures.
Favorite restaurant - Do you have a favorite date spot that could accommodate a private party, or even allow you to rent out their entire space for the evening? Why not use a space that already holds so much meaning for you - the spot where you went to brunch on your third date can become the spot you celebrated your marriage, and future dates there will be even more special! Plus, if you aren’t excited about decorating usually you can work with whatever decor is built into the space.
Mountaintop - Alright, who DOESN’T love the idea of exchanging vows on top of a mountain? What could be more spectacular than sharing such an intimate and meaningful moment with a few close friends and nothing but blue sky all around? While mountaintop weddings can be a little bit challenging to organize, I think we can all agree the results are WORTH IT.
Botanical garden - If you’re a huge nature lover like me, the idea of getting married in a botanical garden gives you butterflies (or wait, are those actual butterflies?! …’cuz botanical gardens…have butterflies). There’s something to be said for the timeless elegance of a flower filled wedding in the gardens.
Now that you have your venue selected, what’s next?
