I live in Hilliard Ohio and have been trying to find the perfect venue for our wedding for months now. I don't want anything that's too formal and stuffy like a ballroom at a hotel and I have this vision of a rustic barn wedding with a sort if vintage feel. We're trying to keep everything for the wedding around $7k excluding our honeymoon. I've looked at a few places but now we're stuck and cannot find any places that look like something we'd like to go tour. We're inviting around 120 guests but expecting 80...We're willing to take a little drive to get there but no more than an hour since we have a lot of guests coming in from out of state.
We've already toured the Everal Barn in Westerville and although it was nice I feel it was a little bit of an awkward set up for what we're trying accomplish. Plus I would prefer to be able to serve alcohol, I might be able to compromise on that but extra bonus points for finding something that would allow it :)
We've also looked at Barn at the Backwoods in Thornville but I've heard nothing but terrible things about the owners and staff being rude, The venue was beautiful but it was also at the TOP of our budget which means we'd go over by at least 2k.
Please help :) We're thinking of an off season date in the beginning of November...any and all suggestions are openly welcomed and appreciated! Thanks!
