Hi weddingbee, my fiance and I are planning on some kind of hybrid elopement/intimate wedding (I’m not sure what to call it) and need a little help. Here are the details so far: we’re looking at a double shotgun house to rent off Air BnB for seven or six people, we want to have the ceremony somewhere in Audubon Park, and we want the reception to be a wonderful restaurant in downtown. His parents are invited and know the plan, but my mother was so dismally unenthusiastic about our engagement that I’ve elected not to tell them, maybe until I have to. I don’t know if they’ll even come. Anyway, we have four of our closest friends coming with us for the entirety of the weekend. So question rattle-off: where is the best place in Audubon to have a cheap outdoor ceremony? Best restaurant/atmosphere with live music already established for “reception”? Best cakes or desserts we could take back to the “hotel” to cut and toast? And are there any photographers that do cheap elopement packages? Your answers and help are greatly appreciated, lovely people!
