I will be getting married in August and am having a difficult time finding a location. Originally, we were going to go to Bolivia (my fiances country) so little planning was need and now I am so stressed and confused when it comes to this wedding. We live in Frederick MD. We want a nighttime ceremony with candle light and lanterns and reception in the same place. It will be a small wedding, 20 ppl max. We are on a tight budget, at the most $5k and because of this would like to find a place that also does their own catoring or maybe even a restaurant with the look we want for our ceremony and reception! Any ideas??? Please help! We would like an area as well for out door things for us to do to celebrate our honey moon there for the weekend =) I would love a spanish look to the venue, especially since we were not able to go to Bolivia.

Are you looking for something in the DC area, or outside of the DC area if you want to have your honeymoon there too? If you are looking for something close to home, I got married at the Tabard Inn in DC, and this might be somewhere worth looking into for you. They have a beautiful outdoor courtyard that you could use for the ceremony, and then have indoor event rooms that can be used for the reception. They are an intimate venue that can only hold up to about 60 guests, so they’re perfect for your small size! I can go on and on about how much I loved the Tabard Inn. Their food is great, and they take care of all of the linens/plates/ etc. I hardly had to do a thing.
I don’t know if they’d let you do the reception outside too, though, if that’s what you want. They also only let you have the space until 11 PM, which may or may not be a concern for you if you wanted to start things after dark (and thus may prefer that your reception runs later). And they don’t have a Spanish look—more of an old, eclectic look.

thank you all so much for your suggestions! I am looking into both and they look like great locations and ideas. This is a big help hearing all your suggestions. Thank you =) We are definitly looking for something close to home, especially because of my grandmother and I would like something with accomodations or atleast some near by because of our wedding being so late at night.
Thank you all so much!
