FALL BRIDES | DESTINATIONS
A European destination wedding is the dream of many brides. There’s the romantic culture, robust history and historic landmarks, providing the perfect environment for a fairy-tale affair. Aiming for European Flair?
Unfortunately, traveling overseas isn’t always in the cards — or the budget. Don’t fret. These U.S. destinations offer a European ambi- ance that will make you glad you didn’t cross an ocean for your affair. Remember to call these destinations — and oth- ers like them—well before you plan on tying the knot. They are wildly popular for a reason and generally put clients on a waiting list. Get married among the aspens, pines and snow-covered peaks. Aspen offers a perfect mix of natural beauty and chic amenities. There is a plethora of cozy lodges that will create the perfect setting for your special day. Bonus: This destination is stunning all year long. Thank you, Rocky Mountains. THAT FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE KIND OF FEELING … Redmond, Wash. Not much feels more French chic than getting married in a field of lavender. There are plenty to choose from in Washington State. Many farms will permit you to marry adjacent to the fields — guaranteeing breathtaking photos with rows of lav- ender in the background. Most of these farms offer both inside and outside spaces, all within view of the subtle beau- ty of the fields. California is wine country, and you need not look further than Napa Valley for a European touch. Napa County is located just North of San Pablo Bay in northern California and is brimming with rolling hills and lush grape vines. Every vineyard offers spectacular views of their property to enjoy as you and your guests experience amazing food and wine. Combine that with the dry California heat and you will soon forget you aren’t in Italy. A TUSCAN VINEYARD WEDDING … Napa County, Calif. A COZY SWISS ALPS VIBE … Aspen, Colo.
