'We wanted an outdoor venue that still had a formal vibe. We also wanted a venue that we could have both the reception and ceremony at not only for the convenience but so ourselves and guests could sit back and relax without having to travel between venues. Freedom Shores was the perfect fit for this as they had many ceremony and reception locations for us to choose from, all with stunning backdrops and locations' – Jo
