Hey all! First time posting so thought I'd give a bit of background info.
We just became officially engaged today (5-11) although since we started dating we kinda knew we'd be married at some point. We're older, my second wedding, his first. He was engaged before, and she died 5 years ago. We now live with his daughter (pre-teen, and we get along amazingly well, she's my girl too!) and nephew. So.... we will be married next year, summertime is what we're thinking, and we need somewhere near the Bethel area to be married. We both love the outdoors, water, hunting, etc. HIs daughter chose camo for the accent at our wedding, which we both love. lol We are on a VERY tight budget, DIY for sure. We need: outdoor venue, extremely cheap (or free), can fit around 75-100 guests (tops, he's got a HUGE family), will let us do all the food, decorating, etc, allow a dog (although she's a service dog so should be allowed anywhere, but she'll be in the wedding too!), and close to Bethel (no more than an hour away.) We are kind of thinking something like a pavilion at a park, or a campground, or something like that, but have no idea where to even get started looking. Thanks in advance!!!
