A Venue with a View: 6 Locations for your Greensboro Wedding
Jun 30, 2019 | By: Doug Burke Photography
Deciding on the wedding venue can be a daunting task because of all the different aspects you must consider: how much privacy does it offer, is it roomy enough for all your guests, the décor, the acoustics, ample parking for attendee. That sounds exhausting already!
What if there is one last thing to consider that will matter most for years to come? You got it right: we are referring to the aesthetic.
Wedding photographs are the main thing you remember your special day with. If you choose a venue that has great lighting, an incredible view, and some awesome backdrops – you will end up thanking yourself in the future.
Here is a list of the most striking wedding venues and photo shoot locations you can find for your Greensboro wedding.
1. Greensboro Country Club
The Greensboro Country Club is a popular wedding venue in the city. It is usually reserved for members only but if you do have a membership, or know someone who does, you can make a reservation and have the wedding of your dreams.
The best part about choosing the Country Club as your venue is that they offer a beautiful indoor space for the ceremony. And you can choose to have an outdoor reception if you would like to have a touch of nature and greenery in your photographs.
2. The Bog Garden
The Bog Garden at Benjamin Park is one of a kind. This gorgeous nature preserve and botanical garden features a raised walkway made of wooden planks that will add that extra bit of earthy and traditional feel to your photographs.
If you want to have the actual wedding here too, remember that the garden is quite small and can only accommodate intimate ceremonies of about 25-70 people.
Rest assured, if the view is a priority for you, the Bog Garden will not disappoint.
There is even a miniature waterfall, called Serenity Falls, which can serve as an enchantingly quaint backdrop for your wedding photos. Your guests will surely love it as much as you do!
3. Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden
The dedicated wedding gazebo at the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden can accommodate up to a hundred guests. After the ceremony, you and your loved ones can enjoy posing for photographs in the garden, which includes a wealth of annual and perennial flowers and canopy trees.
Combined with an ancient-looking bridge, the Bicentennial Garden provides a wonderful background for an unforgettable wedding, providing you with an opportunity for a striking photo shoot if your photographer knows what to do.
4. Runnymede Park- Winston Salem
If you are willing to travel a little out of town, the Runnymede Park located in Winston Salem is a great place for your wedding ceremony. After attending the outdoor event, you and your new spouse can enjoy walking hand-in-hand, or even lounging amongst, fiery red and bright pink azalea fields.
Your wedding photos will benefit greatly from this quirky pop of color, and the beautiful flower fields will add an enchanting vibe you didn’t know you wanted.
5. The Arboretum
If being surrounded by nature is what rocks your boat, The Greensboro Arboretum is a great option for the wedding venue. The botanical garden has a dedicated wedding gazebo that is booked out for weddings. It can easily accommodate up to 150 guests.
This 17-acre garden holds twelve permanent plant collections and dedicated displays along with landscape features, such as a fountain, an overlook and arbor, bridges and benches amongst many others. Wedding guests will enjoy basking in the year-round beauty of the garden, and your wedding photographs will end up looking like they are right out of a Disney movie.
6. Summerfield Farms- Summerfield
If you want to go all out on the picturesque open field aesthetic, you can travel about 20 minutes out of town to Summerfield Farms. Located in the rolling countryside hills, the Farm feels like a safe haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Charming barns, small cabins and cottages, and outdoor patios amongst large oak trees – if this sounds like your kind of thing, we would recommend going for it! Take your entire wedding party for the weekend and make a mini-vacation out of it. There is plenty of accommodation at the farm that can fit up to 1500 people.
The green fields and cute little cabins will provide more than enough opportunity for a delightfully rustic photo shoot.
If you want to have your wedding photographs taken at one of these places but you feel that they are be incompatible with your other requirements, you can even consider having the ceremony and reception at one place while booking another for the photo shoot.
When you do have the venue and photo shoot location down, don’t forget that a professional touch can transform your photos from ordinary to incredible. Contact Doug Burke Photography at 336.486.9932 for wedding photos that will keep people talking for years to come!
