5 western New York venues for the outdoor-loving couple

Need to infuse a little fresh air and sunshine into your big day? I totally get it. I basically pout like a child if it's sunny and I'm not outside soaking it all in ๐Ÿ˜Ž

You want your wedding to still be a classy affair though... you don't want it to feel like just another fourth of July picnic!

So where do you go to get the great outdoors and get a gorgeous venue with all the professionalism and accommodations of a traditional wedding venue? This list will tell you so keep on reading my friend....


Ok so this one requires a bit longer of a drive if you're coming from the Buffalo/Niagara region, but I promise it will be more than worth it for you and your guests! Plus you can stay right at your venue, so there's no need to find accommodations once you get there!

My #1 choice is Mirbeau Inn & Spa - where your nuptials will be held on a bridge over the koi pond and your reception will be set between the stunning gardens and magical woods. If you love florals, this is the place to be when the gardens are in bloom.


Say "I do" overlooking the beautiful golf course grounds or under the pavilion if the weather turns! Timberlodge at Arrowhead is one of my favorite indoor/outdoor venues that features a stunning rustic building for your dinner as well as multiple outdoor patios and a gazebo for your ceremony, cocktail hour and dancing the night away.

Another one of my favorite features in the boardwalk area available for bride(s)/groom(s) portraits. It's so serene and makes for absolutely stunning photos!

Rustic not really your style? Make sure to check out the other venue on their property - the Sterling. All the same features but with a modern, glass sided building for your reception!
