Hey everyone! I’m new so don’t be afraid to show me the ropes!
Getting married September 2016 and starting to look for venues. I REALLY want the rustic/barn look for it. Any type of water (lake, pond, river, creek)is a huge bonus. I also want to be in control of the food. Like I’m crazy enough to want to make the snacks and dessert myself and let someone handle dinner.
So I’m looking for preferably a barn, near water, DIY cetering. Budget is a few thousand, but less is better. We will probably not want to spend over $5-7 on the location. Not going to do it in a church etc we are not religious.
Also we live in Buffalo NY, have family in Rochester, Ohio, NC, and my maid of honor is from Petrolia ON. So location isn’t too important. I’m willing to celebrate in the states surrounding here and southern ON.
Thanks so much for your help and advice!!

Wingate Barn, Avon Century Barn, Twin Silos Barn, Wedding Barn and Event Venue, Hurd Orchards, and Bristol 1859 Barn. All in or near Rochester. Not familiar with barns in Buffalo or the other areas! Also, I’m not exactly sure how DIY these barns are, or if they require a caterer, etc. but they’re worth looking in to!

We did ours in a barn near a lake, on a county preserve. It was 100$ to rent the barn. And my mom and sisters did all the food. So it was pretty inexpensive altogether. I don’t know much about the areas you mentioned, but I would suggest looking at state and county parks if possible. You could find what you want for a very low price.
