September 5, 2018 , In: Drift , With: No Comments

When it comes to finding the best wedding location, you can’t go wrong with somewhere that puts you in touch with nature.

Whether the backdrop is an ocean, a mountain or beautiful gardens – natural wedding locations will help you create a day beyond your wildest dreams. Check out these nine places to find one that fits your love of nature for your big day.

Chesapeake Bay Foundation

This one is for all the beach lovers. There are both indoor and outdoor spaces available. From a banquet hall to a beach to the waterfront, the foundation has over 31 acres of Bayfront landscape. You can even have your wedding on a private beach!

Dallas Arboretum

This stunning venue offers indoor and outdoor spaces so that you can have your wedding in one of the gardens and the reception in the Rosine Hall. Fit up to 500 guests who will be in awe at the magic you found in the heart of Dallas.

Treehouse Point

Make your childhood dreams come true by getting married in Treehouse Point in Issaquah, Washington. This rustic tree house is in the middle of a forest, so you’ll be surrounded by nature on your big day. There are also overnight accommodations so your guests can celebrate all night long.

Malibu Rocky Oaks

The views from Malibu Rocky Oaks in California will make your jaw drop. This 10-acre private vineyard has 360 views of the Santa Monica Mountains, and you will love every minute of it. You get a luxury bathroom trailer and one to two parking lot attendants if you get married between April through October.

The Ruins at Barnsley Resort

If you’re a non-traditional couple, you’ll love this ancient ruins spot in Georgia. Get married outside and have your reception “inside” the ruins with no roof at this beautiful spot. If you’re not ready to tie the knot, Barnsley Resort also offers services for the perfect proposal on the property.

Montelucia Resort & Spa

Get married in a desert resort for stunning views of Camelback Mountain. The best part about the views is the spa that’s attached to the resort for the perfect bachelorette activity. You can either say your vows on the Valencia Lawn outside or inside the Castillo Lucena with 18-foot ceilings.

Dunton Hot Springs

This ghost town turned into a beautiful resort is a great spot for a private and intimate ceremony. The location only accommodates small groups, but you can feel connected to the environment by getting married in the open-air chapel. There’s also an indoor dance hall for receptions where you can have food made with ingredients straight from the property.

Yosemite National Park

Get married and check off a visit to a national park with a wedding at Yosemite National Park in California. If you’re a mountain-lover, you will love taking photos in the valley. There are four different locations at the park so you can choose to be indoors or outside for your wedding, reception or both.

Catoctin Hall at Musket Ridge

Tie the knot at this country club in Maryland with mountain views that seem to go on forever. The 150-acre property has facilities for both a more formal and a country setting. It can fit up to 250 guests, and it’s close to D.C. for couples who live in the city but want to get married in a natural location.

Choose the Best Place for You

All of these are great spots for natural wedding locations. But it’s ultimately up to you if you want a more rural barn, a view of the mountains or a lush garden as your wedding setting. Find the best location for you and celebrate committing to the person you love in a space that you also love.
