About Me

wedding planning from a man's perspective

As a man, I know next to nothing about planning a wedding. My fiancée and I agreed that we would work together to plan our wedding. She provided me with a long list of things that I was to do independently, a list that she was going to take care of, and a list that we would work on together. The minute she handed me these three sheets of paper, I knew that we were in for a long six months. That was when I started talking to her about hiring someone to help us with the planning of our wedding. Visit our blog to find out how we worked together with a planner to make our day the best it could be.

Two Of The Best Fall Wedding Venues

If you are planning to get married in the fall, you may want to consider a wedding venue that will showcase the beautiful colors that are unique about this season. With the right venue, it is easy to take advantage of the beauty nature has already provided. Here are a couple of options that will allow you to do so.

A Classic Barn - No matter what state you want your nuptials to take place in, there are beautiful barn venues that are available for lease. The options offered by a classic barn will vary based on the location, but you can generally count on huge open spaces that are full of charm and character. 

A classic barn offers many advantages over some of the other locations. Some of these are as follows:

  • Barns usually come in a very neutral color palate—you can choose to keep the locations rustic and natural, or you can choose to decorate the neutral environments to your heart's desire. 
  • Barns ensure that weather will not ruin your day—unfortunately, fall weather can often be unpredictable, but a barn will provide you more protection from the elements than other outdoor venues. 
  • Barns and the farms that they are located on will offer you incredible photo opportunities for your wedding pictures—if it is a working farm, you can even invite the animals to get in on the action.

If a classic farm is not your idea of fun, how about taking a trip back into your childhood and host your wedding at a summer camp venue?

A Summer Camp -  Although they usually do not come with what you may think of as wedding related frills, if you can think outside of the box, they may offer everything you are looking for and more. Some of the options you can find at your favorite summer camp are as follows:

  • Everything in one location—you will find commercial-sized kitchens, sleeping accommodations for your guests, plenty of space to celebrate, and more.
  • Natural settings—do you want to get married on the pier or in the middle of an open field? 
  • Picture perfect locations—with an outdoor setting, you can keep decorations to a minimum and still achieve the once in a lifetime impact you are looking for.

No matter if you choose a barn, your favorite summer camp or someplace else, the most important thing to remember is that you are creating memories that will last a lifetime. For more information, contact a professional in your area or visit a website like
