“Couples have come from as far west as California, Arizona, Oklahoma and Hawaii (it's true!), and north from Toronto; as far east as Rhode Island, and south from Florida and the Carolinas. And everywhere in between. . . . if people are coming all that way, a destination wedding sometimes needs to be more than just scenic. It has to be a place where guests of the bride and groom feel it's worth making the journey. A place with activities and fun diversions can be a bigger draw. . . . Besides winery tours, there are opportunities to rent boats and get out on the lakes, visit breweries, enjoy rehearsal dinners at other venues and restaurants—or just kick back around a fire pit or laze in a hammock by the water. . . . Executive chefs take advantage of farm-to-table local produce, cheeses and meats in creating fine dining experiences and menus for weddings and rehearsal dinners.”
