"It's all yours!" It's a phrase we like to hear when served dessert, but love to hear when touring potential destination wedding reception sites. Secludedness is next to gorgeousness when it comes to falling for a location: We all want ours to be the only wedding in the world—no randoms wandering through the rehearsal dinner or unfortunate looking sunbathers showing up in the ceremony photos. Have these stranger-free options all to yourself.
