This post has been difficult for two reasons 1. We want to make clear that non of the above mentioned venues pay us for mentioning them, we recommend them because they are great profesionals to work with and 2. It is extremely hard to pick just 10 venues/locations out of hundreds amazing others that we have all over the country, of which I believe I will need to create a series of this post in the future.
