With the Supreme Court ruling today on equality #lovewins. We are absolutely thrilled for our friends in the LGBTQ community. There are so many wedding venue options out there, but we have decided to share a few of our very favorite event venue styles that are perfect for any upcoming same sex marriage. Whether you are looking for a private estate, a castle, a warehouse, a boutique hotel, or a unique off-the-beaten-path venue for your special day, we have you covered.
Private estate wedding venues are intimate and often very secluded. They make it possible to create a very personalized celebration. You will not have to worry about other hotel guests or visitors detracting from your wedding or ceremony. At a private estate venue, you will feel like you are in your own backyard with your closest family and friends. One of our finest examples of a private estate venue is the Sanctuary Estate in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
The greatest thing about boutique hotels is that they offer accommodations for your guests. This means that your guests can stay at the same venue where your wedding is taking place (and possibly completely take the whole property over for the weekend). Consider The Surf Lodge in Montauk on Long Island. You can accommodate roughly 40 of your guests in the Lodge's 20 rooms. And you will be able to have your rehearsal dinner, wedding, and Sunday brunch all in one place.
Looking for a rustic chic setting for your wedding celebration? Consider glamping with your family and friends for the weekend. Venues like The Resort at Paws Up can hardly be considered campgrounds. With every amenity you would expect from a five star hotel (and then some), this is an event space that you and your guests will never forget.
Have you always dreamed of a fairytale wedding? Similar to a private estate, most castles only allow one wedding a night. Some castles can be completely rented out by you and your guests. It's like a private estate and boutique hotel all in one. Castle Leslie, in Ireland, is an ideal place for a fairy-tale destination wedding.
Industrial venues offer a blank canvas that you can use to really create any vision your heart desires. High ceilings, brick walls, and concrete floors may not sound romantic, but some of the best wedding designs we have ever seen have been created in these raw spaces. Consider the Foundry in New York City. This space not only provides an industrial-style reception space, but also offers a rooftop with stunning NYC skyline views that can be used for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or even a tented reception.
We want to hear from you...
