Truly, we at the Venue Report think that finding a new place to celebrate all that existence has to offer is one of the most exciting things anyone can do. So to keep the good times rolling, we compiled a super-list of sorts, laying out the greatest venue openings of last year and the most exciting ones set for this year. We hope you peruse, explore, and, most of all, have fun!

Lockhaven Farm learn more

Purchased in 1994, the family farm was where patriarch Johnny Holden had worked as a kid. He had always dreamed of owning it. Much later, Brooke Holden had always dreamed of being married there, and after her wedding in April 2016, she was thrilled to announce its opening shortly after. Just outside Myrtle Beach, the farmhouse and barn venues are 48 breathtaking acres of private farmland, oak trees, and sunflower fields. In short, it’s perfect.
