    Our venue will hold both the ceremony and reception. We just found it was easier for us to keep everything in the same vicinity since we live in Wisconsin and our wedding is in March

    March in Wisconsin = snow snow snow

    Ceremony venue! We knew we wanted to get married at our church, so we booked it the day we got back from our proposal trip. We booked our reception venue about a month later!

    Hi Alisha! That makes perfect sense! It's easier for guests to stay in one venue than to commute to another when thinking about the weather!
