I'm about to lose my damn mind with looking for a venue that both me and fiancee can be really happy with. Ideally, we had wanted a more casual atmosphere where people could dance, play cardgames or volleyball, drink, eat, and possibly have karaoke at some point.
Basically your family reunion type house party, but since we live in an apartment and not ready to buy one yet, there goes that!
Any suggestions/advice on where to look to rent an estate or house with a backyard or beach area in/around NYC? I've already been scoping out VRBO, but I would so appreciate any advice.
