With 16 months left until the wedding, I feel good having crossed a few things off our list. We're officially written in the calendar for our favorite church (which often has a 2 year waitlist!) and we may have a special friend of mine agreeing to be our photogrpher ;).
But venue, that's the big mama. After considering time of year, weather, time of day and of course decorations and photos, I feel like a tented wedding is a good fit. It's romantic and elegant but its whimsical too. Here are some tented venues I fell head over heels for on Pinterest, (You can click directly on the photos to be taken to their source.)
We're having our wedding later in the day, to capture sunshine, sunset and nighttime photos (sunset in California during the summer can be as late as 8:30 pm). I knew I wanted part of the reception enclosed to account for temperamental weather like wind (or heaven forbid...rain) but I really wanted it to be open to the outdoors too. We've found a location that has a beautiful white draped tent, with an entire side panel open to a grassy lawn (perfect for string of bulbs, like this!). It fits perfect with what we're going for. Cross your fingers for us that it pans out!
While we still have time to look at other venues, the tented venues definitely hold a special place in my heart. Have you ever been to a tented reception? Are there any other types of venues you recommend, considering the elements we're looking for?
Share a memory from your favorite wedding with me!
