Top 5 US Wedding Venues With A European Charm 

Planning on having a fairytale wedding inspired by one of the romantic cities in Europe? Imagine, you and the love of your life, walking down the aisle in a light and airy ballroom in a grand Baroque style gallery or even having a toast in an old vineyard in Tuscany. As lovely as that may seem, having a transatlantic trip may be slightly impractical, especially if you'd like all of your friends and family to attend.
But don't worry, there's a plan B! Did you know that there are many wedding venues across the country that gives off a European feel? Check out the top 5 US wedding venues that will make you feel like you’re in Europe without having to catch a flight!

1. Swan House - Atlanta, Georgia

Inspired by Italian and English classical styles, the Swan House exudes an elegant historical appeal and serene gardens. This venue is perfect for you if you prefer a romantic outdoor wedding. Say your I do’s in front of their ever-famous cascading Fountain Side and then proceed to the Boxwood Garden or Column Side for the reception.


The Swan House was designed by Philip Trammel Shutze in 1928 and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Since it is a historic house museum, parties and receptions are not allowed inside the mansion, but your guests can tour the mansion for a few hours during your event.

2. Vizcaya Museum - Miami, Florida

Have an event to remember for a lifetime in a place with majestic architecture and magical gardens. Vizcaya was an interpretation of an 18th-century Italian villa in the Veneto region of northern Italy. This estate offers a unique combination of natural beauty and old-world appeal, making it the perfect venue for you if you have a fine appreciation for Italian Renaissance charm.


Ideal for evening celebrations, you and your guests can enjoy exclusive access to their inner courtyard, outside terraces, and gardens. Daytime ceremonies and occasions can be held anywhere in the gardens as the Main House is not offered in the earlier part of the day. 

3. Sunstone Winery - Santa Ynez, California

If you enjoy an authentic French countryside feel, the Sunstone Winery in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley should be number one on your list of wedding venues. The Sunstone Villa is built with reclaimed materials from various buildings in the regions of Marseille and Provence, France. 


The Sunstone Winery sure knows how to make your special day even more special. Clients are welcome to have multiple experiences throughout their weekend stay which includes a welcome reception, rehearsal dinner, or an after-wedding brunch. And you can also get your private wine tasting and tour with their winemaker. 

 4. Malibu Rocky Oaks - Malibu, California

Situated in the heart of the Malibu Coast, the 37 acre Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyard offers a 360-degree scenic view of the Santa Monica Mountains. This Tuscan villa is an excellent venue for you if you have an eye for breath-taking views and a passion for a great selection of fine wines.


5. Kestrel Park - Santa Ynez, California

If you’ve been obsessing over films and TV shows that were shot in the beautiful English countryside (e.g. Jane Austen films), then the Kestrel Park in Santa Ynez, California is the ideal wedding venue for you. Romantic, elegant, and rustic best describe this magnificent 100-acre property. Kestrel Park is a 19th-century style English country house and it’s made even more exquisite by its endearing gardens and stables.
