I live in Murfreesboro, TN and have been looking for an intimate (preferably outdoor) wedding and reception venue in the Nashville area. Problem is, I'm just not a Southern bride! I grew up in the south, but if I see one more venue that mentions the words "hay," "boots," "rustic," or "barn" I think I might scream. I'm becoming less and less convinced I'll find a lovely garden venue or a modern/urban venue for 25 people for under $1,000 (rental fee, not including tax, etc.)
Any other brides trying to have a non-southern wedding in the south?
