WEDDINGS IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Saying “I do” is one of the biggest commitments you’ll ever make, and we understand the pressure to find a wedding venue that fits you and your partner. Glamping is all about traveling to unique and unexpected places, and if originality is your thing then these unusual venues are just the ticket. Have a country-style wedding at a dude ranch in Colorado with acres of unspoiled wilderness as the backdrop, or travel to upstate New York and treat guests to a stay in a yurt after a dazzling ceremony beside a tranquil pond.

DESTINATION WEDDINGS

Destination weddings aren’t just for the rich and famous. Intimate ceremonies abroad are gaining popularity among both culture- and nature-lovers who fancy something a bit more exotic. Picture having your wedding dinner up in a canopy of trees in South Africa or taking pictures of sun-kissed faces at the pristine coastline of Nicaragua. You could even spend your wedding night in a luxury windmill in Santorini, Greece, waking up to views of the island’s famously breathtaking landscape.

You can’t beat a wedding ceremony right on your home turf, and these glamping sites take the cake for hosting glamorous and unforgettable weddings. Mosey on over to Northern California, where you can have a magically secluded ceremony at sunset with a backdrop of majestic redwood trees setting the scene. Nearby in Pescadero, the bride and groom can treat their guests to mouthwatering local produce and wine, as well as sustainable seafood from the California coast. There is also something to be said for Southern charm, and a historic plantation in Louisiana provides glampers with a fairytale setting of oak trees and colorful azaleas planted in times past.
