Destination weddings are popular because they offer a sense of something beyond the ordinary routine, beyond the familiar, but they also create a unique shared experience among all who attend that transforms the ceremony into something extraordinary.

Whether your looking for an authentic, laid-back, rustic country wedding, or for a tastefully elegant setting with spectacular views overlooking vineyards and a stunning lake, The Southern Finger Lakes is the perfect backdrop for your big day.

Of course, the ideal wedding destination is about more than views and eye candy, more than a beautiful setting for those wedding photographs and Instagram posts. It also offers a diverse experience that they couple, wedding party, family and friends will never forget.

“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.”
