    @kt235021:  as beautiful as outdoor weddings can be, i did not want to be stressing about the weather. That made indoor a no-brainer for me. Both are beautiful though!

    I would say if Keeler is cheaper, book there and hire a DOC. The weather could be a bummer too but you never know.

    Honestly you can’t go wrong with either!!!

    I vote Keeler!  It’s lovely to be able to be indoors if you want, or to step outside at a wedding; especially into beautiful gardens.  The other venue just seems so…dark to me.

    I’m weird, though, I get crazy about light.  Love me some natural light…

    Just be sure to pick decor that’s easily executable so you don’t make yourself nuts day of.

    @kt235021:  I had to go through a similar thing picking venues – my dream, outdoor venue, with a lot of DIY, etc… or the all-inclusive venue that did everything.

     

    I picked the later.  And, let me tell you, it was SO nice working with a staff who did weddings all the time.  I didn’t have to worry about the flow/logistics because it’s what they did.  And, seriously – after all the picking and planning weddings entail – you’ll be glad it’s one less thing to think about!

     

    I’ll also add – I’m not a fan of outdoor weddings – especially July/Aug weddings (I’m in an area where it can be 100 degrees easily- and it’s no fun sweating in the heat!

    Outdoor weddings are so popular now and i think they suck esp in the summer. Sorry. That being said I just like the Tavern better, as it seems lighter, and I think it’s awesome to add all the little touches.

    @kt235021:  I think the DIY aspect along with the time the event must end would be the two biggest variables for me.  Maybe it’s neither of those 2 venues and you should keep looking… BUT – I do think there is HUGE value in having things all inclusive.  What DIY things would you not be able to do with the first venue that you think you might want to do?

    ETA:  The first venue had me at : set up and clean up 🙂

    I like the first one. The second looks like someone’s backyard and I cant see inside pictures so it doesnt seem as nice nor does it offer as much. Can’t you get outdoor pics in someone’s backyard if it will be nice out? My backyard has more going on than that. Plus, you dont have to set up or clean up or ask your bridesmaids to do it (u mentioned no DOC).
