Hi! So, my fiance and I are having trouble choosing a venue. We are getting married in NC, but he is from Texas, so we will have a lot of out-of-town guests. We are trying to pick a location that is close to a major airport (think Raleigh, Charlottle, or Greensboro area) for the out-of-town guests.
I am in college in Alabama right now, so I have very limited time on when I can go home to look for venues. We would really love to be married in a church or chapel, for the religious significance of it. The problem is that NC seems to be lacking in wedding chapels that are in line with our image of our wedding, and it is hard to research churches online since so many churches do not have wedding info on their websites. Does anyone know of a pretty church in your area (literally, anywhere near those three major cities works!) that is simple and pretty that we could consider? I like the look of a stone or brick church on the outside. As far as the inside goes, the lighter the colors and simpler the decor the better. Please let me know if you have any ideas so to where we should be looking! So far the search has only been online, and I am starting to be discouraged as it seems the only places that match our image of the wedding are in Texas! Thanks in advance for any help!
EDIT: We are planning to have between 100-150 people (my fiance is from TX so a lot of guest list depends on how many people will travel.) We are both baptist, but if the church is a different denomination and allows you to bring your own minister, we don't care what denomination the church is. I realize there aren't too many churches out there like that, but it's worth asking!
