Our reporters here at The Venue Report feel so grateful for the incredible pre-launch press we have received. In case you missed it, we were featured in Rue Magazine with the amazing photo shoot that we styled with Jose Villa behind the lens, our dear friend Summer of Grey Likes Wedding Blog who did wardrobe, and then our team of reporters jumped in to conceptualize and style it.
This photo shoot was our coming out party.. There will be lots more of these coming your way soon.
From Rue Magazine: "Say hello to the best new thing in event planning. The Venue Report uncovers the coolest places in all the land. Imagine a hidden tucked away forest to host a Midsummer's Night Dream bash - decked with glittering fireworks and over-flowing glasses of chardonnay, of course. They've scouted rustic old barns overlooking the ocean, perfect for a country hoedown. For the coffee house couple that wants to host their wedding at a cafe with mismatched chairs? The Venue Report has the scoop on the cutest spot. And the girls who want to go "glamping" with a s'mores specialist standing by? They've found that too"
From Rue Magazine - "The Venue Reporters & Correspondents will find the celebration location of your dreams, get you amazing deals, and report on the "inside info for each one. They only draft reports on venues that they deem have a cool or unique factor. They'll report on the "up and comers", the venues that are brand new and have never been seen before... EVER. To the celebrators and party planners that want something one-of-a-kind and never been seen before, you'll find it at The Venue Report.
Because they strive to be out-of-the-box, edgy, innovative and zany in their approach to venue nominations, they are not afraid to travel to the low valleys and high mountain peaks, isolated gaps within sprawling city life, hidden villages in foreign lands, or even your backyard (if you promise not to arrest them for trespassing) in order to find great venues. They crave the abyss, the esoteric, and the underdog all while acknowledging the merits of established venues.
A venue is that place where memories are created. It's a place that you'll revisit again and again to capture nostalgic feelings. Without a celebration location, all of your DIY party decorations, pinatas, Shetland ponies, and guests have nowhere to go. Where Will You Celebrate?"
