I am getting married in May and signed a contract with a venue in Elkridge Maryland (the Belmont conference center) about 7 months ago. About two weeks ago we received a lovely phone call that they are no longer doing weddings and will not be honoring their contract. Fantastic! In the last two weeks I have looked at 7 different venues in the Maryland/NoVa region but I haven't found anything yet that is perfect. I am planning on having a rather large wedding (around 250) and would like both the ceremony and reception to be outside (or tented). We would like to find something that is somewhat rustic looking and very natural rather than manicured.
Any suggestions! Thanks
