Green and Burgundy Boho Wedding | Paradise Spring

When looking for a wedding venue, the main thing I was looking for was a customizable one-stop-shop. We wanted a place where our family and friends could stay with us to celebrate all weekend long. Paradise Spring allowed the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and the day after to be at one place. No need for transportation and no need to leave. We loved that there were no restrictions on vendors to use. They provided the space, and we were able to customize it to whatever we wanted.

Paradise Spring was the first and only venue I visited and we booked within a week of me being engaged. When you know, you know! It was absolutely incredible. We love nature and being outdoors and the sense of being away from the city life, and the venue was perfect for that. Felt remote without actually being remote. From the site visits to my endless questions, they are a definite must when looking at options for a wedding. I was so satisfied with the service we received from Paradise Spring. Ashley and her team were outstanding to work with. I like to say that Ashley and I are friends because we gush to each other about all things wedding even after my wedding has ended. Working with them felt like home from the very first time we went there.
