It doesn't get more idyllic than Northern California's organic Bear Flag Farm. Hosting a limited number of events each year, this hidden gem is known for its breathtaking vineyards, lavendar fields, orchards, and unique farm to table dining. It's extraordinary to find a property that offers so much, wrapped up in an exclusive, boutique farm and winery experience.

2. Trendy Art Gallery

Marrying admist the deconstructed walls, amazing lighting, and the beauty of modern art at the Long View Gallery in D.C. is surely a contemporary couple's dream. This list wouldn't be complete without a venue that's the epitome of urban culture. 

3. Artisan Ballroom

Let us count the ways we love Barr Mansion. First - it's green green green (certified organic) which is a big bonus in our book. You can also find both a dreamy Southern mansion and a rustic artisan ballroom with floor to ceiling windows housed on this beautiful Austin property. 

4. Creative Museum Space

The New Children's Museum is a spot we adore for Southern California creatives who are looking for a venue that is everything they are: clever, trendy, playful and fun! The wide open space and contemporary decor make it smart without being a tiny but stuffy. 

5. East Coast Escape

A tranquil oasis of vineyard, farm, barn, and winery, all with gorgeous valley views, is nestled just outside of Charlottesville at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards. One look at the luxe, rustic setting, and we're swept away by the serenity and romance of this East Coast escape. 

6. Rustic Urban Sanctuary

Set right in the center of bustling L.A., Marvimon is an urban sanctuary with super-hip style, a fabulous layout, and sweet amenities. How fabulous would it be to marry in their vertical garden-embellished courtyard, then transition to the bistro and grand hall for cocktails and dinner?

7. A Southern Plantation

For the couple whose hearts are rooted in the South, we recommend a ceremony and reception at a sprawling plantation. Kendall Plantation in Texas Hill Country is a winner for classic Antebellum-style architecture and old-fashioned Southern charm! 

8. New York Night Club

Who ever said you coudn't have a wedding at a night club! The Brooklyn-based Bell House is an old warehouse-turned concert venue, and a super unique place to plan a less-than-conventional city wedding in style.

9. Tropical Ruins

If marrying admist the lush tropical overgrowth (and chandeliers)! of a transformed sugar mill in Maui hadn't crossed your mind, let us plant the seed. Hawaii's Haiku Mill is utterly breathtaking and completely unforgettable. 

10. Sophisticated Cafe Seating

A summer wedding at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is made even more magical by the sophisticated and majestic setting at the zoo's Cafe Brauer. It's an architectural marvel!
