Having your ceremony and reception in the same place can save on your budget and is definitely easier on your guests. Make sure you ask the venue if there is a space for the ceremony. Also, if you are looking at an outdoor venue, ask about the rain plan.
Is the ceremony location easy to get to for your guests? Some ceremony spaces have beautiful views, but may require a bit of a walk to access. Is there a separate fee for the ceremony? Sometimes there are fees for the additional setup, chairs, arbors, etc.
The majority of our weddings have the ceremony and reception at our venue. The outdoor ceremony space is just outside the main reception space and is easy to access. The surrounding gardens and forest provide a gorgeous backdrop with views of the blueberry fields. Our large, covered deck provides a backup plan separate from the reception space.
Of course, you could choose to go through with the outdoor ceremony in spite of a pop-up shower like one couple did and it provided really cute pics!
Our all-inclusive packages include ceremony decor, a custom built arbor and all setup and breakdown. We would love to have you come for a tour and see the ceremony space for yourself!
Hi - I'm Becky Kimmons! My husband, Cale, and I are the farmers behind Pleasant Union Farm. (It may be a bit of a stretch to call myself a farmer, but I'm learning as a I go.) Our dream and journey began in our engagement and marriage and allows us to celebrate weddings with couples and families. We are learning much about farming and weddings, and my goal is to share as much as I can with you!
