Hotels and Banquet Halls:

Embrace the luxury and convenience of hotels or banquet halls. Versatile spaces, professional services, and customizable setups for a seamless ceremony. Venues like this often offer package deals like catering or onsite decorators that can help maximize your budget and bring convenience to your big day.

Restaurants and Bars:

Consider less conventional indoor options like bars and restaurants to rent out for your big day. A choice like this often offers catering or easier parking and allows you to save time while making new memories in a place you can easily revisit. How fun would it be to have an anniversary toast at the bar where you shared your vows.

Galleries and More:

What better way to celebrate the beauty of your love than surrounded by works of art! Albeit better for more intimate events, many galleries and cultural spaces offer event rentals so you can entertain amongst the art. This allows for conversation, mingling, and gorgeous vignettes.

Barns, Cabins, or Rentals:

For some couples a private retreat fits the bill for their big day. Consider a rented cabin, VRBO, Peerspace or beautiful barn/privately owned venue, where you can elope with your partner and turn the ceremony into an escape. Furthermore, you can always choose to stay at the venue meaning no added day of travel time.

Outdoor Locations:

Embrace the serenity of nature’s breathtaking landscapes as we embark on a journey through a selection of outdoor wedding locations for your picture-perfect celebration. From vibrant botanical gardens to majestic mountain vistas, each outdoor location provides an idyllic backdrop for your union.

Arboretums and Gardens:

Bask in the natural beauty of lush landscapes, blooming flowers, and serene surroundings. Allow mother nature to create a picturesque backdrop for a romantic outdoor ceremony. Dance with the daffodils and dine with daisies in the night air while you create warm memories for your future. 

Mountainous Scenery:

Exchange vows with panoramic mountain views as your backdrop, surrounded by the majestic allure of nature’s peaks and valleys. Head to a cliff side or a state park pavilion for your wedding location, there are endless scenic spots to gather in the grass.

Waterfront Wonders:

From cascading waterfalls to serene beach settings embrace the soothing ambiance of waterscapes for a tranquil experience. Be one with the salt air while you exchange vows, sitting along the sand toasting to your future. 

On the Open Waters:

What better way to sail into the sunset than on an actual sailboat! Rent or charter a small boat or yacht for the evening and savor your time under the stars. Following your ceremony you can set sail into your forever in style.
