Trying to decide on a venue is always one of the most challenging details in wedding planning. You want the location to represent your wedding's theme, be convenient for guests, fit your budget, and feel special. It's a tall order. But when you find that venue, you know it's the right match. Emma and Ryan knew they wanted to host a charming rustic wedding and opted for a ceremony setting tucked away under the shade of the forest. The venue perfectly suited the relaxed vibe of this couple's vision.

Thank you to Kaitlyn Phipps for sharing this pretty wedding with us!
