I'd prefer for it to be outside, with an indoor backup available. If it's within a 1-1.5 hour drive of Lexington, that'd be great too.
I'm not too fond of the barn ideas, or churches. Trying to keep it affordable and small - 50 people or so. I don't want to spend thousands on a venue - if I could keep it to a couple hundred, that would be awesome! It's just so hard to find something affordable. I'd be willing to spend a little more if they include tables, chairs, tents, and stuff like that.
I'm leaning towards Boone Tavern because they meet all these criteria, but I'm still hoping to find more options. I would love to bring food and drinks, and I don't believe I can there (or most places).
I just need any and all advice I can get! I'd like to have as little hassle as possible, so parks seem to end up adding more for me to do - and I don't know if I can handle doing all of it...
Thanks in advance!
