In our last Columbia/Lexington wedding venue series, we took a look at some of the best all-inclusive venues in the area.  Today, we’re going to check out some venues with a lot of rustic, Southern character.

Rustic Wedding Venues

You can see rustic wedding touches all over pinterest and etsy in the past few years- mason jars, daisies, cowboy boots, and burlap everything, so today I wanted to look at some wedding venues in the Columbia area that fit effortlessly into this rustic, country theme.  It could be a scenic open field, a big old barn, a rural orchard or a quiet creekside reception area, these venues each have their own unique brands of Southern charm.
