I am planning a 2017 Wedding in the Valley of Fire followed by a reception for about 30-60 guests total.
I am planning to piece it all together myself as virtually every "prepackaged" ceremony photo in the VOF scares me.
Regardless, I am looking for some help in finding a suitable reception venue.
I was okay with the idea of a casual reception but my fiance would like a formal sit down meal - so that is what we are hoping for.
First plan was to rent a private estate - this is still an option and I am open to suggestions but do have a short list of my own at this point.
I'm looking for something different - have an outdoor space is key as we will have smokers and I would like a location where we can remain late into the evening.
I've looked at suites but can't seem to find anything that will give us the space for a sit down meal which is why i am leaning towards the estate.
Any of your typical event spaces are out, no ball rooms, no restaurants ideally.
If anyone has an input we would really appreciate it - we are into quirky unconventional venues as well!
Thanks in advance
