This is my very first post and ironically I never posted while I was y for my planning for my own wedding.
My best friend just got engaged and has a $10,000 budget for EVERYTHING. She is slowly coming to terms with the fact that she won’t be able to have her “dream” wedding but i want to do everything I can to help her get what she is looking for.
Currently, they are looking at sites in Colorado, Mexico and Northern California. She is also open to Vancouver and Oregon. She is from No Cal and he is from Colorado and they are both wonderfuly outdoorsy and active people. Her ideal right now would be to host the ceremony on “the wedding deck” in Vail and then hold a reception at a cozy, rustic (but not too “rustic”) slightly upscale lodge. Those places definitely exist but are quite expensive.
Again, they are open to ANY of the places mentioned above however if any of you know of some places that are “off the beaten path” or a “hidden gem” I would love to hear of them. We are doing all of our research from afar so we are only as good as the popular places that come up in google searches. If there are mansions, well kept barns, lofts or any type of cool, unique affordable venues that you know of we would love to hear about them.
Thanks in advance to the ladies who can help!
