Hello! I have been looking for a venue to hold my ceremony & reception for a few months now.. I must ask for help!
It's our dream to have our wedding on (or overlooking) a beach, or lake. I'm willing to travel and have been looking at venues in CT, RI, MA, NH, & ME (trying not to go too far north, York is ideal)
I'd prefer to stay away from something traditional or like your normal reception hall or large hotel. I would love to have an outdoor ceremony (but a good backup plan in case of rain) and probably indoor reception. We have a tight budget.. trying to stay around $10,000
Maybe a nice restaurant or small inn, as they don't seem as likely to include venue costs? I'm a designer, so I'll be making my invites and decorations to save costs.
Eolia castle was our fave but after the fees it was too expensive.
Anthony's lake club in Danbury, CT is within our budget but if we can find something on a BEACH so we can continue the party for the weekend with our families, that would really be ideal!!
