One of the unexpected decisions we have had to make is whether we want our reception at The Blackthorne Inn under a tent or in their newly renovated (indoor) event space. They decided to renovate this space several months after we booked the venue, so we’ve been in a toss up about which to go with. After checking out the new space and taking into consideration our theme and number of guests, we have decided to stick with the tent. There’s something so romantic and inviting about an open space that will allow guests to enjoy the beautiful June evening in the Virginia countryside. After seeing these photos of gorgeous tented receptions, I definitely think we made the right choice!
