I've only been engaged for about a month and we are starting to look at venues. We don't have a date set exactly but would like it to be in the next 1-2 years, and will fully depend on venue. We looked at David's Country Inn and LOVED it. We both loved the charm and atmosphere of the whole facility. Then looking at the other venues photos that I had initially wanted to look at, I don't think any of them had the cozy, intimate feeling that Davids does. I wanted to see Flander's Valley, Perona Farms and Meadow Wood Manor, but now that I saw David's first, all of their photos look like standard "banquet halls" without much charm to separate them from anywhere else.
Does anyone have any suggestions on other places in the $100-$120/pp budget that has some nice character to it that we should check out? We are looking in Northern NJ because we live in Bethlehem, PA, as does his immediate family, my family in Hackettstown area and the rest are coming from NYC so it is a nice halfway point. Our guest list is 160-180 at this time.
