    jayquellen :  I was gonna say first one for sure but only thing is the shooting range is bothering me. The second venue definitely sounds like a lot more work. I don’t know. I wanna see too what other people think.

    Is there any way to have a quiet time for the 15m of ceremony? The amount of work venue 2 is very much makes me not like it lol. Especially if you are only worried about the ceremony, which is very short. 

    FWIW apprently there was a duck quacking during my ceremony and a cow moo-ing during the rehearsal and I didnt hear it at all lol.

    I say number 2, sounds like a bit more work but it is so beautiful! I got married at a vineyard with little villas for us to stay at, and it was a weekend getaway even though it was an hour from home. So nice to have everyone on the property and have it to yourselves. 

    By the way, I LOVE your username…I assume it is from the youtube video??? I’m Jacquelyn too… and  my husband straight up calls me Jay-Quellen daily because of that video. Best. Video. Ever. and I have seen a T-Shirt about it, I want one!!!

    I voted one because you said you prefer the reception facilities and I think that should take priority over the ceremony space. Not that I can talk, we’re having a church wedding. But my gut feeling is number two…

    jayquellen :  Yeah my nickname as a kid was always jack or jackjack, but I died the second I saw that video, so hilarious. “ummmm you mean Jacquelyn??” that is great! 

    And yes we did pay for the rooms for the bridal party, it was a hard hit. But at the end of the day it was a great weekend getaway and it was worth it, for me at least!

    jayquellen :  So are you like 50/50 between the 2 venues at this point or you prefer one a bit more than the other?

    jayquellen :  From the photos you shared, I like the aethetics of Woodfire more. I enjoy the large windows that look out to the trees in the reception room (vs barn-looking building in Willow that seems closed off and dark/no natural light). And if Woodfire is closer, more inclusive + affordable…I would pick that. BUT having the sound of gunfire in the background of ceremony, etc would bother me for sure. Would there be patrons of the gun range at your venue? How divided is the wedding from the rest of their business? I would ask the coordinator at Woodfire how loud those sound can be, if it’s ever been an issue with past brides, etc.

    Definitely number two. We got married at an outdoor wedding venue in Sydney, it is definitely worth the effort, especially for the photos with the water and trees in the background. Is there an option for you to take with the gun range owners to have a silent hour or so during the ceremony.l. They might be willing to help out.
