The Cedar Room, Charleston, South Carolina (Above)
Ideal for a chic vintage-inspired fete, this renovated 1800s cigar factory features an outdoor courtyard, authentic Low Country fare, and views of the Cooper River and iconic Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

The Inn at Newport Ranch, Fort Bragg, California
If you're into dramatic cliffs, awe-inspiring redwoods, and farm-to-table cuisine, check out this 2,000-acre cattle ranch on the Mendocino coast. Our favorite ceremony site? Celebration Point, a rock promontory with crashing Pacific waves on two sides.

Millwick, Los Angeles
Brides are flocking to this indoor-outdoor space in the downtown Arts District. The draw? A 2 a.m. curfew, the palm-lined garden patio, and 4,500 square feet of loft-like interiors.

The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, Chicago
Built in the 19th century, this former men's club was closed to the public until last year, when it opened as a meticulously restored hotel. The White City Ballroom still has its original marble floors, ornate fireplaces, and stained-glass windowpanes.

Il Mercato, New Orleans
Get hitched next to citrus trees at this food market turned events space, then move the party inside to the mod great room. The library bar is perfect for a wild after-party.

Granite Ridge Estate & Barn, Norway, Maine
Take over this 128-acre private mountain for the weekend and get married al fresco in the forest or in a wooden barn overlooking the countryside below.

26 Bridge, Brooklyn
Once a steel factory, this colossal space in arty Dumbo plays up its industrial past with steel-vaulted ceilings, original brick walls, and a skylight that runs the length of the room.

Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York
Long Island's famous museum opened its Water Mill location in 2012 and is now (finally!) booking weddings. Take advantage with vows in a gallery, flanked by Jackson Pollock paintings, or in an open pavilion that seems to go on forever.

Prospect House, Dripping Springs, Texas
Say your vows in a field of Hill Country wildflowers, then move inside to a sleek 220-foot-long aluminum space that will appeal to your inner minimalist.

The White Sparrow, Quinlan, Texas
Thanks to its whitewashed interior, high ceiling, and six vintage brass chandeliers, this massive barn 43 miles outside Dallas is more elegant than rustic. FYI, the owner
is a wedding photographer, so the place was made for gorgeous wedding photos.
