Hello all! I’m looking for places in the south where my fiance and I can have our ceremony outside, surrounded by trees. I’m not sure any “venues” that have what I’m looking for in Georgia, so I wanted to branch out and see if anyone had any experience with venues like this. I’m not against looking at public parks either, but I do want somewhere with some sort of seating for my wedding of about 25ish.
I’m willing to travel really anywhere, but I’d prefer not to travel outside the South if I don’t have to.

Have you looked into summer camps? Many rent their facilities for conferences, events, and weddings. I’m getting married in an outdoor chapel surrounded by trees at a summer camp in Minnesota! Check our rentmycamp.com or just search summer camp wedding in areas of interest!
Here’s some inspiration! This is another camp in minnesota. http://www.nataliechampajennings.com/2014/03/hok-si-la-outdoor-campground-wedding-red-wing-mn-kayla-micah/

These places aren’t outdoors, but Ashton Gardens and The Day Chapel at the botancial gardens in Athens are both glass chapels surrounded by trees.

Try the Mildred B. Cooper memorial chapel in Arkansas.

Are you Christian by chance? Throwncrown Chapel in Arkansas is gorgeous – indoors but with an outdoor “forest chapel” feel

I have two 🙂 The first is the Baughman center in Gainesville, FL. It sits on a lake and is surrounded by trees and is truly gorgeous.
And the second is meadow woods at seven springs in PA (not the south obviously, but I think it might be kind of what you have in mind?) I’m partial to this one, because it’s where we got married 😉 We had a really good experience planning with the coordinator there. We lived in FL at the time and she made the process smooth even from afar.
ETA: Looking the opposite way you see mountains!
