With seemingly endless wedding venue options to choose from, it’s hard to narrow down your choices and select a spot that aligns with your budget, location, and style criteria. Lucky for you, we did the research and legwork, scouring the country (and the Internet!) to compile a master list of wedding destinations that are our go-to recs, year after year. From mountain locales with panoramic views and rustic-glam summer camps — so hip for 2017, mark our word — to chic landmarks in your all-time favorite cities, we’ve got a wedding venue for you, your groom, and your style.
If you’re into the grand outdoors, check out The Little Nell’s sundeck, which sits at a 11,000 feet and features panoramic views of the Elk Mountains, or Brush Creek Ranch, where you pose for portraits, exchange vows, and party on 30,000 acres of untouched landscape. Prefer manicured gardens to the rough terrain? You’ll fall head-over-heels for Jardin de Buis, a picture-perfect estate and gardens in northern New Jersey. It’s so hot right now that photographers are literally begging to shoot there—yes, really.
Want a building with rich history? Wow your guests with the unexpected by booking an old library in Boston or a recently restored brewery in Austin, Texas. And foodies, don’t think we forgot about you! You’ll find your heaven on either coast, whether you’re into the stellar wine list at Meadowood Napa Valley in California or farm-fresh fare at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in upstate New York.
