One thing's for sure—this country knows how to celebrate. From chardonnay-and-cab bashes in Cali to gourmet grits and gospel in the South, join us as we road-trip across the nation's wedding landscape, one rollicking region at a time.

• This is a region rich with history—our nation's first (Philadelphia) and present (Washington, D.C.) capitals are here, as is New York, the city that inspired the term melting pot.

• While views of landmarks are coveted, so are sites that mesh with modern, minimalist design, like lofts, warehouses, and hotel penthouses.

As in the rest of Pennsylvania, you can marry yourselves here. Other ways to make your day city-centric: Ring chimes during your walk down the aisle in a nod to the Liberty Bell, toss Tastykake baked goods into the welcome bags, and pass mini-cheesesteaks during cocktail hour.
