The Midwest has so many options to offer when it comes to romantic venues for your wedding day. While the midwest has it’s fair share of modern & industrial flare, there’s much to be said about it’s classic architecture. There’s no doubt that it has deeply rooted characteristics that are embodied in these historic venues. If you ask me, these elements are perfect to make a wedding day feel complete!
The large Tudor style mansion at Stan Hywet is not the only thing this venue has to offer. The gardens here are my absolute favorite. Roaming through the gardens at Stan Hywet feels like you’ve walked into the pages of The Secret Garden. One of the best things about their gardens is how they change throughout the seasons. There are so many wonderful options for your ceremony and reception.
If you’re looking for old world charm with convenience in the city, Tudor Arms Hotel at the Doubletree is a great option. This venue has so many ornate details to offer throughout it’s event spaces. While it doesn’t have a sprawling estate like some other venues, it’s located a short distance from many beautiful public gardens and museums.
The Taylor Mansion has the best of both worlds when it comes to convenience and privacy. Located directly in downtown Columbus, it’s also near many public parks and conservatories. However, this venue has it own quaint little garden within it’s own walls. It’s the perfect spot for all of your wedding events, from ceremony to reception. And photos in between!
The lesser known area that makes of the Chautauqua Institution makes this sleepy community in western New York feel so inviting. The Hall of Philosophy is a large greek-style theater that’s perfect for an outdoor ceremony. The ornate Athenaeum Hotel sits on a beautiful piece of property, overlooking the shores of Chautauqua Lake.
Located in the suburbs outside of Chicago, the historic Wilder Mansion has so much to offer for a wedding day. The beautiful estate as many locations to host wedding events from morning to night. The interior of the mansion is just as beautiful as the exterior. With a greenhouse on site, this venue accommodates weddings for all seasons.
