Tennessee Couple Hosts an Intimate and Sophisticated Destination Wedding in the Mountains

Kathryn and Anthony opted for an intimate destination wedding at Omni Park Grove in Asheville, North Carolina overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains after a memorable road trip they took there years before. Kathryn and Anthony met on a dating app while Kathryn was living in Boston, Massachusetts. Anthony was living in Cookeville, Tennessee and after a few months of a long-distance relationship, Kathryn moved to Cookeville as well. They made a road trip out of the move, which was the first of many road trips afterwards due to their mutual love of traveling.

How to Pick the Perfect Venue

When planning a wedding, there are so many choices that it can be overwhelming! Will you wear a suit or tux? How many bridesmaids should I have? While all of those choices are optional, there is one that is vital to your wedding: your venue! But picking out the perfect location to say “I Do” can be a daunting task! Luckily, we have come up with some tips to help you find your perfect wedding venue.

Rules

Many venues will have rules about what you can and cannot do for your wedding. Art galleries might ask you to not use real candles, while a barn might ask you to not use artificial petals lining your ceremony aisle. A local park or beach might require a permit for hosting a wedding ceremony. If the rules do not coincide with your vision, then it might be best to look elsewhere. Make sure to ask your venue what their rules are regarding alcohol, decor, grand exit options, catering, etc.
