From greenhouses to dairy farms and even battleships, we've seen some pretty unique venues. A new venue idea we love? Your local farmer's market.

This organic garden-inspired styled shoot by Phrene Exquisite Photography in the Greenhouse at the Downtown Grand Rapids Market in Grand Rapids, Michigan proves just how cool a farmers market wedding can be. The wedding planners of RSVP Events paired up with local vendors who operate out of the market (just one of the benefits of choosing this type of venue!) like Grocer's Daughter Chocolates, Love's Ice Cream and Lost and Found Treasures of Old and New, they created the ultimate rustic bohemian reception with an eco-chic flair. Rustic wood tables decorated with lots of lush green garlands, potted plants and arrangements of fresh herbs, kale, king protea and wildflowers by florist Ambiance Expressing You pull off the look perfectly. We love how each detail really ties in farm fresh flavors like the refreshing cocktails infused with locally grown herbs and vials filled with locally sourced loose leaf tea placed at each setting is as favors.
