When looking for a venue, it’s important to keep in mind:
How many guests are you planning to invite? Are you looking for accommodation on-site for your guests as well? Or just a ceremony and reception space? Having an understanding of this may help determine which venues will work best for you (and potentially help you narrow down your search)!
Are you planning to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony? How about the reception? Have you thought about what time of year you’d like to have your wedding at? If you’re considering an outdoor ceremony, does your venue have a solid rain plan option? These are all great questions to start thinking about in your search for a wedding venue! Since I work with all of my couples to devise a solid rain plan, I can also give you a hand figuring your own out, so let me know!
From a photography perspective, lighting is everything! The lighting inside a venue can make or break the vibe of your photos, and it’s super important to consider this when booking your own wedding venue! Your photographer should be able to help you understand and work with your venue lighting (and if you don’t have a photographer yet, get in touch because I’d love to work with you)!
