My fiancee and I just got engaged last month and are trying to decide on a venue for the ceremony in the Rochester area for next summer between June and August (no specific date set yet). I like a more traditional setting (love anything that has stained glass windows) with a non-traditional ceremony. He prefers anything that is entirely non-traditional. Neither of us is religious.
We looked at Chapel Hill, which I am in love with. I have also priced out the Colgate Divinity Chapel, Casa Larga, the U of R Interfaith Chapel (I'm not at all fan of the appearance), and am currently waiting to hear back from Artisanworks regarding their pricing.
So far it seems as though they all cost about the same - around $1,000 - for the ceremony. Does anyone have any other suggestions for ceremony venues that may not be as pricey? We would have about 150 guests and also do not want it in a hotel. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
