What a cool venue!  We are getting married in an old hardware store, which has been converted to an event venue.  Kinda unique I guess.

We are getting married in a historic train station that is now a restaurant.  Trains still go by on the tracks right next to the back deck (where our ceremony and reception will be).

We haven’t signed anything yet, but our front runner by far is Salvage One, an architectural artifacts resale shop in our city. We’d like to have both the ceremony and reception there.

I think it is somewhat unique!  My Fiance and I love hiking and the mountains, so we’re having the reception at a hall on the top of a mountain:

You ladies all have beautiful venues.

Here is the venue I love. Schaar’s Bluff Gathering Center is a super eco-friendly LEED certified building on the Mississippi River. It’s powered by a windmill and really incorporates my American Indian heritage.

These are so cool! I love seeing all the “after” photos of how women made unique spaces their own, too.


Just wondering, TealaB–do grizzlies often frequent the area around your venue?  I’d be a little freaked by that.

In Korea, we’re getting married at a Confucian shrine under 500 year old ginko trees!  It’s also the university I work at, so it’s an important place to me.

I wish I could post pics, but the site won’t let me.  Here’s the link.  The outdoor pics are of the part of the venue we are using (not the indoor part).

All of those venues are so freaking cool!  I love the aquarium idea.  Your guests (and you) will have a ball!  Ours is so not unique lol, but the reputation around town is that they do a fabulous job, so we’ll settle for that!

I wouldn’t say ours is “super” unique… but its definitely not your run of the mill ball room, country club, etc wedding. We’re getting married in a converted factory that just opened as a venue last year. Its very urban grunge… i love it ๐Ÿ™‚

We rented a private residence for three days and three nights, and we’re hosting a Welcome Party, Rehearsal Dinner, and the Ceremony + Reception dinner there.  Also, out of town guests get to stay in a mansion for three days!  It’s just beautiful, and has allowed us to do nearly everything our way – no vendor restrictions, time limits, etc!

@veganglam – It is a mountain, so there must be grizzlies SOMEWHERE around, but I’ve never seen any – and certainly not near the lodge where all the people are.

The picture is actually from a wildlife refugee area they have up at the top.  They have two orphaned bears that were found when they were cubs.  The area is this huge, natural area, but yes it does have a fence.  At the base of the mountain, there is also a pack of wolves living in a similar situation – they were all raised in captivity for the movie industry, and would be unable to survive in the wild on their own ๐Ÿ™  I’m hoping my guests will have the chance to go see the bears before coming to the reception ๐Ÿ™‚

Our ceremony and reception is on a permanently docked boat which has been converted to a restaurant.  It’s located on the Delaware River which separates Philadelphia from New Jersey.
