Five Truly Magical Wedding Locations in the USA

Written by Posted On Friday, 14 September 2018 18:58

Once the rush of the engagement announcement slows down, you’ll want to start considering where you’ll be hosting the wedding of your dreams. Your wedding venue will set the scene and the tone of your wedding, so it’s important that you consider your options carefully. A wedding held in a New Hampshire barn overlooking rolling pasture will be a vastly different affair than one held in a Napa Valley vineyard with crystal chandeliers.

Jessica, Designer for JJ’s House, notes that many brides don’t know what kind of wedding they want to have until they find their location, which is why she suggests looking through a few options before making any final decisions.

Here are some of Jessica’s top suggestions for amazing wedding destinations:

1.    Haiku Mill in Maui, Hawaii

If you love the idea of marrying in Hawaii but a beach wedding isn’t your style, then consider the stunning Haiku Mills. This former sugar plantation is an old-world elegance to a T. Lush, overgrown, and carefully curated to look abandoned and reclaimed by nature, Haiku Mills has the feeling of a fairy-tale secret garden that you’ve stumbled across amidst the jungle. If dripping greenery, swaths of white silk drapery, and crystal chandeliers all beneath the open sky of the ruins of a plantation appeal to you, then Haiku Mills will make your heart sing!

2.    Sodo Park in Seattle, Washington

Not everyone wants opulent romance for his or her wedding, and that’s okay! If you’re into that industrial feel, then Sodo Park in Seattle, Washington is going to blow you away. Located just minutes from downtown in Seattle’s historic SoDo district, Sodo Park blends historical architecture, soaring loft ceilings, and exposed brick and warm, wood beams with a modern, elegant feel. A truly unique spot to host a wedding, Sodo Park is well-versed in hosting weddings and has caterers, decorators, and florists working with them to create a gorgeous wedding just for you and yours.

3.    Union Hill in Sonora, California

Union Hill in Sonora, California is the epitome of a rustic, Pinterest-worthy wedding location. A cozy spot with multiple locations that are perfect for ceremonies or photos. Say your vows beneath the ancient looking beams of the chapel or do your first look in front of the outdoor fireplace. Want to stay on-site? Book the entire inn for your immediate party and day trip down to Lake Tahoe for your bachelorette party!

4.    Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas

If you’re looking for a real ‘wow’ location, look no further than the Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This stunning glass cathedral in the woods of Arkansas will stop your breath. Not only does the chapel look like an Elvin kingdom peeking through the trees, it also is no slouch in the capacity department! Thorncrown Chapel can seat 100 guests in its 6,000 sq. ft. of glass-enclosed space.

5.    The Ruins at Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, Georgia

Unique and Instagram worthy, The Ruins at Barnsley Resort is a wedding venue like no other. Tie the knot in the Italian-esque ruins smothered in creeping ivy, or in the perfectly overgrown gardens. It’s a true storybook wedding feel at The Ruins, not to mention that the Barnsley Resort is prepared to offer everything from planning, to décor, to catering, to event coordination!
