Dear Abbey: What advice do you have when selecting a venue?

 

If you would have told me just 5 years ago that I would host over 200 events a year and practically live in a barn...I would have thought you were crazy. Fast forward to the year 2020 where I own not one but two business in the wedding industry and am living through a worldwide pandemic. Life is crazy. 

 

One of the most prevalent questions I get is asked is what advice would you give couples looking to book a wedding venue? I am going to share three pieces of advice as well as provide a little background on owning a wedding venue. 

 

ABOUT OUR GUEST:

I'm Abbey Brown. Host of the Milestone Market Podcast. I’m a doodle loving marathon runner who has a passion for all things weddings and small business. I grew up in north Topeka watching my parents run a family business and mastering the art of human resources. At the age of 26, I had the amazing opportunity to leave my corporate America cubical to join forces with my family and open a one-of-a-kind wedding venue in the Topeka community.  Through this experience I fell in love with the industry and the families we get the privilege to serve. 

 

When I am not picking up confetti off of the ground or restocking the champagne, I am hanging out and dancing with the coolest husband around, Andrew, and our crazy toddler, Bennett. Our chunky golden doodle, Duncan, completes our team.
