hmm...now where was I? Venues, I think. With all that dress excitement, I almost forgot.
So there ended up being three venues that the future mister and I visited.
1. John Oliver Michael House
Pros: historic, LOVED the room for the bridal party to get ready
Cons: 15-20 minutes outside of town, the barn was small, fairly new and not quite as rustic as I would have liked
2. Tucker Plantation
Pros: historic, rustic, air conditioned, gorgeous
Cons: 20-30 minutes outside of town, poor lighting in ceremony area, bridal suite not as nice, more expensive
3. The Hill
Pros: historic, rustic, beautiful houses for the bridal parties to get ready in, and only 5 minutes from downtown!
Cons: the reception won't be in an actual barn
