Top Fall Wedding Destinations

The summer wedding is a dream for some, but a fall wedding is pure fantasy for most. More and more couples are turning to the more colorful months of the year to say “I Do.” Autumn brings colors that summer cannot–from vibrant golden hues to deep purple evening skies. The west coast is a hot spot for fall weddings and the mid west also provides a colorful escape, and that’s not to mention the north east which is thick in lavender farms and colonial estates that make for the perfect setting with an autumn-inspired backdrop.

From the coast of California to the estates of Italy, here are 10 hot spots for fall weddings.


The Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina

North Carolina is beautiful year round but in this region, when fall sets in and the air turns crisp, it makes for a perfect fall wedding. The mountainous backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains accented by the changing leaves makes for a magical wedding setting. In Asheville, The Biltmore Estate is a common destination for weddings. The 250-room French chateau, which sits on thousands of acres of land, provides elegance and beauty for the perfect autumn wedding.
