My idea of a perfect venue is one that incorporates your personalities, is beautiful, is different, has great light during the ceremony, and has several neat places to take photos which adds variety in your final gallery of images. Pick some place that makes your heart race, some place you get excited about when you visit or someplace that means something to you. Don't settle for the same ol' same just because it's easy and cheap: this day only happens once. And, let's face it, guests don't usually LOVE attending weddings, they come because they love you and want to support you. So picking a venue that your guests can get excited about and have fun at makes the day a lot more enjoyable and easier to drag husbands and boyfriends too. On top of that, having a unique and different venue gets us photographers so excited and pumped about photographing your day! The creative possibilities are seriously endless for detail shots, bridal portraits, group shots...the list goes on.
