My fiance and I have always envisioned a rustic theme but upon deciding to plan our wedding in Connecticut from Georgia (so our families can attend), the best venue option both price-wise and planning-wise (most things included like catering, event coordinator, etc.) is a ballroom setting.
It's not really what we had in mind but I really like everything about it other than the ballroom style. It also has some waterfront parts.
What do you guys think for rustic touches in a ballroom setting? Farm venue is our top choice.
