Best Wedding Venues in The United States
Chicago is home to some of the best wedding venues in the united states. We have, in our backyard, a plethora of both timeless, elegant wedding venues as well as some fun and unique spaces too. And over the past 9 years, we have worked at nearly each and every one of them. And while we are based in Chicago, we do travel and will do floral and decor for destination weddings. In fact, we have 3 out-of-state weddings this year alone!
The other day we as a team found ourselves discussing some of the other venues throughout the country that we’ve been longing to work at. So naturally, we figured that is the perfect topic for today’s Blog Post! Enjoy a closer look at some of the best wedding venues in The United States!
Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, NY
Brooklyn Botanic Gardens is located in Brooklyn, New York and is the perfect spot for any wedding or celebration. The Palm House has a stunning Garden setting for your ceremony, an outdoor terrace for cocktails, and the exquisite glass-walled space for your reception can seat up to 250 guests. The Atrium is another intimate wedding location that has gorgeous floor-to-ceiling glass walls and can seat up to 125 people.
Pippenhill Farms, VA
Pippin Hill Farm and vineyards is hands down one of the best wedding venues in the united states. It is such a gorgeous spot for a winery-inspired wedding. This venue is located in North Garden, Virginia and was created by a husband and wife team (which we love) who both have a background in hospitality and design. There are four event spaces at this winery including the Granary, the Veranda, the Tasting Room (great for cocktail hour), and the Vineyard Lawn and Main Lawn (ceremony lawns for up to 200 guests). The view isn’t too bad either!

This swanky luxurious venue has Bar SixtyFive (the ceremony space), the Gallery (the cocktail space), and the Rainbow Room (the reception space). This wedding venue itself is 65 stories up in Rockefeller Center which gives you an amazing view and can hold up to about 250 guests. Quite possibly the best view of any wedding venue!

The space can accommodate 125 people for a seated dinner indoors, or 165 for seated dinner in the courtyard under the tent.

Since starting Life In Bloom in 2012, this is one venue founder, Rachel Wyffels has been DYING to work at!
Basilica Hudson, NY
Basilica Hudson is located in Hudson New York. This spectacular venue is an industrial church that holds a lot of history (an 1880s factory space, knitting mill, glue factory and now an arts center). This blank canvas is a great venue to be able to show your style and create a wedding space to your liking. The design options here are endless and it’s raw design makes it onto our list of the best wedding venues in the united states!

If you are up for a destination wedding, this might be one of the best wedding venues in the United States for that tropical vibe!
Stifel Theatre, MO
