Fall or Harvest Wedding Theme – Part 2

Wedding Ceremony and Reception Site

A wonderful place to hold a harvest-themed ceremony and reception is at an actual farm. A converted barn would be an added bonus. If you know someone in your family who has a hobby farm, ask if they would be willing to let you have your ceremony and/or reception there. If you don’t have someone in the family, try looking in your areas for farms that can be rented for just such an occasion. If you can’t have your reception at a farm, choose a venue with a natural feel. A park, vineyard, or arboretum would also be great locations to remind you and your guests of harvest-time.
