Host a Rustic Chic Wedding at The Southern Belle

Southern Belle

Rustic chic weddings are more popular than ever nowadays. If you are one of the many brides who have fallen in love with this trend, then the Southern Belle may be the perfect venue for you. With its rustic elegance and authentic barn, the Southern Belle is sure to delight and awe your wedding guests. 

Begin your special day in the Southern Belle’s luxury bridal suite with the rest of your bridesmaids. After you finish getting your hair and makeup done, and maybe even enjoying a small breakfast and mimosa, you will head out to to the Southern Belle’s chic rustic barn to begin the wedding ceremony. The authentic barn houses 6-foot chandeliers and custom lighting set to your desired ambiance. You can also choose to hold your ceremony in the barn’s outdoor area, which can accommodate both large and small tents and includes a rustic pergola with an electric hook-up and up to 14 white church-style pews.

The Southern Chapel is perfect for couples looking to host their wedding inside an intimate, church-style venue. Prepare to fall in love with the chapel’s white exterior and cozy and inviting atmosphere as you walk inside. The Southern Chapel offers a perfect balance of historic charm with modern elegance. Since it is a smaller venue, the maximum capacity for the Southern Chapel is 70 people including staff. This allows you to hold a more personal service for you and your partner. 

Catering Options for Your Upcoming Wedding

Once you have decided on your venue, it is time for you to design your menu for the reception. Maybe you want to serve some hors d’ oeuvres, such as Eastern shore crab dip with baguettes or bacon-wrapped scallops with maple drizzle as a little appetizer for the reception. Or, if your wedding is more casual, you may be more interested in a pre-set BBQ package with some smokehouse pit beef and pit ham and fresh Angus burgers and all-beef hot dogs. If you plan to serve alcohol at your wedding, you will also want to look into alcohol catering services. Some catering companies also offer event planning services and rentals to help make your reception flow smoothly. Smokehouse Grill offers all of this and more to help you plan the wedding reception that will be remembered for years to come!
