When most people think destination wedding they envision a sandy white beach and crashing blue waves behind them as they say “I do!” It’s a gorgeous vision, but it’s not for everyone. That’s why we’ve compiled our top 5 favorite destination wedding venues that offer something a little different!

 

Terra Nostra Deck at NIZUC Resort & Spa, Cancun

Large outdoor deck with an infinity pool? Say no more. This is one of our all-time favourite venues! Located on a small river with lush greenery, the peacefulness of this unique location truly provides an idyllic setting for an intimate wedding.

Mango Orchard at Acre Baja,  San Jose del Cabo

Acre Baja is a resort hidden in the foothills of San Jose del Cabo – better known as a lush sanctuary on 25 acres of breathtaking land. Elegant tree houses and unique private event spaces are at the heart of this resort. Picture a rustic yet elegant tiled dance floor set in the middle of a mango orchard, yes, you read that correctly! This tranquil open-air event space is surrounded by lush palm trees, and is the perfect location for a dreamy wedding.

The Cloisters and Versailles Gardens at The Ocean Club, Bahamas

The Versailles Gardens on Paradise Island are comprised of a lush multi-terraced landscaped setting, overlooking the Nassau Harbor. Stone paths, fountains, and immaculate gardens with endless greenery make this truly a fairy-tale location. With inspiration stemming from the famed French chateau, this location defines tropical luxury. We had the pleasure of planning at this gorgeous venue for Hali & Andrew’s wedding which you can see here.

Rose Hall Great House, Montego Bay

Jamaica’s most famous plantation house is an ideal spot to host a memorable wedding. Elegant staircases serve as the focal point of this grand house, with so many ways to customize and decorate for the wedding of your dreams.

Altos de Chavon at Casa de Campo, La Romana

This 16th century Mediterranean village is in the heart of the countryside. Beautifully handcrafted and meticulously designed by local artisans and architects, this location will make you take a step back in time. Filled with so much culture and creativity, it is truly a sight to be seen. Not to mention, sweeping views of the Chavon River and the Caribbean Sea, making this historic location the perfect venue for a special wedding.  If that’s not enough to make you fall in love with this one of a kind venue, take a look at some of the photos from Kim & Bryan’s wedding!
