Location, Location, Location

Are you looking for a destination wedding for you and your guests to getaway, or are you looking to stay closer to home? Consider these factors as you decide where to look at venues. 


Set the Budget

Set a personal budget for the venue – this will help narrow your initial search, as well as help determine your actual wedding date. 


Consider the Guest List

A great way to narrow down wedding venues is by looking at how many guests they can hold. 100 people or less? Wayfarers Chapel is perfect. Fall in love with a venue that is sure to accommodate all the guests on your list!

Pick a Season

Choose your time of year and select a few dates that work for you within this time frame. Time of year will help determine venue availability. 


Pay a Visit

Photos are one thing, but stepping out and seeing a venue with your own eyes is entirely another. Notice the energy you get and how you feel when you step onsite for the first time.
