In my area there is a really old courthouse that they will rent out very inexpensively for both the ceremony and reception.  Also alot of local museums will do the same.  I think thats kind of cool.

What about a train station, library, or museum?

a historical site, campground, zoo, studio building/warehouse, botanical gardens, train station, theatre / performing arts hall, a school/university

also, if you live around someplace with building ruins, might be romantical..

Zoos are really fun! Alot of times they will bring in a few animals for people to pet and to just have around… I went to one where the brought in this super socialble penguin! It was so adorable! He loved to play and dance.

When I think of Wisconsin I think of the House on the Rock.  How about having it there? lol

My daughter and her fiance did not want a hotel ballroom. They want an outdoor reception with an indoor space just in case of rain. Their ceremony is in a church. The venue they chose is Miami Beach Botanical Garden. It has a beautiful outdoor space with a terrace for dancing. The indoor room is adjacent to the terrace with huge sliding glass doors to connect the 2 spaces. We are also using the indoor space- having a few tables set up in there if people want to get out of the sun. During the cocktail hour the guests can roam around the garden areas.

We were doing the ceremony in our backyard (which is basically a large garden because I love flowers) and the reception at a local college/nunnery, but the planner is being an a-hole. So now I’m looking at a restaurant that overlooks the river or a private residence on one of the main roads through town. The residence has a ballroom with a beautiful fireplace that seats just the right amount, a kitchen, theater, billiard room, and more.

I, also, thought about a golf course or local museum.

We got married on stage at a theatre.

Look into gatting married somewhere that has some sort of tie into you, maybe. I am getting a degree in theatre and Darling Husband is a musician, so a stage felt natural to us. Museums, and libraries were a good suggestion, as were zoos. I know st Louis has several cool venues such as a planetarium, a sculture park, loft spaces, converted factories, old estates, etc. I dont know if there is anything like that where you are.
