Everything Wedding

Here or There? November 6, 2008

It didn’t take me long to decide on a venue for my wedding two years ago. I grew up in a farm town, which is now growing at a rapid rate. Fields are becoming neighborhoods and shopping centers. One of the most beautiful things in the world to me is a field of green crops set against the backdrop of Arizona mountains and a blue sky. Since my dad is a farmer turned developer, he owned some land that we turned into the perfect venue for a farm girl. In the above picture, you can see the grain tanks in the background, a symbol of pride in my family. The ceremony was to the left of the lake and for the reception, we rented a giant tent:

It was a beautiful setting for the evening ceremony and the reception late into the night.

If you just can’t find the right venue, don’t be afraid to create your own. That is a good way to bring your personalities, too. If you like art or history, use a museum. Ask the owner of a mansion or castle if you could use their place (with compensation, of course). A friend of mine even had her wedding at the local zoo. Be creative and have fun. Your guests will appreciate it.
