"Looking to see if anyone has any recommendations for a smaller, unique outdoor wedding venue!

Maybe 75-100 guests.

I am tired of seeing the same ones pop up on the internet so I thought I’d turn to Reddit.

Thanks yall!"

We got married at the blockade runner, and what I loved was the ceremony wasnt on the sand, but a really nice grassy area that overlooked the beach.


1) you got the view

2) the public weren’t waltzing thru your ceremony

3) it was easier to walk on for those with mobility issues.
