1. Necker Island – British Virgin Islands
The ultimate destination wedding resort, this 74-acre private island is Sir Richard Branson’s home and hideaway. Last year, this luxurious resort hosted Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo’s secluded wedding.  Necker Island accommodates up to 28 guests with larger wedding parties support by working with neighboring islands.

2. Kunde Family Estate – Kenwood, CA
This 100+ year old, 5th generation family estate is known for its wine and hosting memorable weddings. Mountain top views, stone ruins and wine aging caves carved into volcanic lava flows are among the choices for the ceremony and reception. Actor Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller married at the winery in October.

3. Sowden House – Los Angeles, CA
Designed by Lloyd Wright, son of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the historic home pays homage to Mayan culture and reflects the elements of nature.  It was featured in Scorsese’s film “Aviator” and was the setting for former “Dexter” star Julie Benz’s marriage to marketing executive, Rich Orosco last Cinco de Mayo.

4. Arlington Hall at Lee Park – Dallas, TX
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford chose stately Arlington Hall at Lee Park for their nuptials. Recently renovated, the hall and park make a peaceful setting nestled in Dallas’ historic Uptown area. Many call the site the front lawn of Dallas because of the majestic trees and beautiful lawns.

5. Front Porch Farms – Ashland City, TN
Country music insiders know this antebellum-style estate located west of Nashville.  It’s fitting that Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood wed Kelli Cashiola amid the picturesque countryside. Couple it with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's engagement party that was held here and Front Porch Farms is the place to ride your county-themed wedding!
