My Favorite Wedding Venues

Happy Monday everyone! With June blooming and warmer temps here in the midwest, I think it’s safe to say summer is officially here. That means its the perfect time for beautiful outdoor sessions. This week I thought I would do a series of posts on my favorite venues (so far!). Today I’ll be sharing with you my favorite wedding venues. Then, Wednesday stay tuned for my favorite portrait locations. So without further ado, (and in no particular order) here a my favorite wedding venues to shoot!

This venue is absolutely incredible! Everywhere you look there is beauty. From the flowers, to the barn, to the beautiful sunsets, this venue does not disappoint! I’m so excited to have a few weddings coming up at this gorgeous wedding venue. An added bonus, the staff is top-notch and the venue offers endless beautiful details.

This venue has some of the best backdrops for portraits. The rolling hills behind the pavilion, the aisles of trees, and the gorgeous hotel on the property make an incredible beautiful setting. The bridal suite is spacious, the staff is always a pleasure to work with, and the grounds are always immaculate.

Incredible grounds and food. Need I say more? In my experience the food at this venue has always been beyond amazing. The grounds are always so beautiful and immaculate no matter what time of year you’re visiting. The staff at this venue is one of the most organized teams I have ever worked with. The bridal suite is spacious and the groom’s getting ready area has wonderful lighting for photographs!

Although I have only second shot at this venue, I fell in love with its beauty the second I arrived. The covered pergola was where I photographed, but the tent is incredible as well. The venue itself is stunning and to-die for.

Oh em gee! If you are a gardening enthusiast, this venue is for you. This is the most beautiful estate I have ever laid eyes on. It has acres of rolling hills with a private lake and gardens everywhere. There’s a beautiful arched pergola just outside the greenhouse that is perfect for an intimate rehearsal dinner or a small wedding. The space available to place a tent is a wonderful location and the ceremony location choices are also incredible.
