Every year, more than 2 million people get married in America, but each couple is different and unique. What might be the perfect wedding ceremony for one couple might be completely nightmarish for another – big, extravagant weddings aren’t for everyone. Even if you’re having a small ceremony with a limited number of guests, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be luxurious. There are some wonderful destinations across America that cater for intimate weddings in style.
Making your day memorable
The key to having the perfect wedding is to do something that is personal to you as a couple. Approach your wedding in the same way that you did the marriage proposal. Even though the last six months may have been a difficult time, there are many couples who have overcome separation and social distancing, and found amazing ways to propose. Even a romantic proposal via Zoom can be incredibly special and beautiful. Ultimately no matter what’s going on in the world, love will conquer all.
Haiku Mill, Hawaii
Haiku Mill is the epitome of elegance. This old world sugar plantation has an ethereal quality to it. What makes the mill so successful for weddings is the personal touch that the owner has given it. The venue is full of world treasures that have been hand-picked from antique fairs and flea markets. Haiku Mill is steeped in history, and there is a uniqueness and charm that you won’t find anywhere else. For a private, intimate ceremony, this is a botanical paradise, a hidden gem where you can make your first memories together as a married couple.
The Carlsbad Flower Fields, California
If you are a lover of color, then The Carlsbad Flower Fields is the perfect luxury destination for you. The best time for a wedding is in spring, when the fields are in full bloom – you can take some beautiful, intimate photos of you and your spouse. The Mediterranean Garden is wonderful for a small ceremony of up to 50 people, and there is a fire pit that you can gather around as the evenings draw in. Just picture that first kiss with a backdrop of blossoms: it will be a day filled with colorful joy.
Treehouse Point, Washington
Only half an hour from Seattle is one of the most beautiful and unusual places for an intimate wedding out in nature – Treehouse Point. The vibrant forest alongside The Raging River provides a one-of-a-kind experience that is secluded and special. For your celebration, the forest area, together with the treehouses, are yours for you and your guests for 22 hours – they also offer accommodation for up to 18 people. You can get married surrounded by lush, green trees and the calming sound of the river flowing by in a personal ceremony that is unique to you.
A luxury wedding can still be intimate and special, no matter how many guests you invite. Ultimately, it is all about celebrating your love and the bond that unites you.
