Wedding Location Ideas

Early to mid-autumn offers a variety of outdoor ceremony ideas.

Plan your I Do’s at a winery where there’s a lake or an ocean in the background.
A country farm where large maple, ash, popular, oak or birch trees stretching across rolling hills and fields of wheat,  giving the bride and groom, wedding party and guests the purest colors fall has to offer.
Another favorite is the peaceful surrounds of an old time wind mill encapsulated by lush greens of ivy for an intimate and cozy wedding ceremony.
If you have country in your heart, choose your ceremony destiny on a farm for a rustic appeal. Pull out the old horse drawn wagon filled with hay bales and kick up the celebrations country style.
A scenic golf course with colorful trees stretching down the fairways, swans gracefully swimming in the ponds with water sprays dancing to the opening wedding waltz.
An outside gazebo decorated with the magic of fall colors will astound any critic of the autumn season.  Decorate with ivy vines, autumn colored leaves, large vases at the entrance with fall flowers, wrap ribbon around the banister railing and columns, wrap corn stalk leaves together with dark colored ribbon and bows, use a personalized isle runner with fall themed design are a few decorating ideas for the gazebo.
