3 Luxury Southern Wedding Venues We Love



Chateau Cocomar (Austin, TX, US)

a�?Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.a�? – CS Lewis


THE VENUE: If you grew up reading fairytales, dreaming of the day your prince would come, this castle is the perfect place to begin the first chapter of your own love story. Chateau Cocomar, with its opulent chandeliers, elegant gardens, and french-style ballrooms, is the perfect place for you and your partner to pledge forever.


WHERE TO STAY: Chateau Cocomar provides a Bridal Dressing Suite, Groom’s Dressing Suite and Family Dressing Suite, and has 7 Deluxe Overnight Suites available for additional rent. However, if you decide to keep the palace a special treat for the day of, this idyllic oasis is actually located in Austin, Texas, near multiple hotels for your choosing. We recommend the Hilton Houston Westchase, as ita��s only 30 minutes away from the venue, and walking distance from popular high-end Houston mall, The Galleria — in case you need any last-minute needs!



a�? Admire work by influential artists, such as Andy Warhol, at the Museum of Fine Arts.

a�? Catch a ball at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros.

a�? Let out your inner child and play some carnival games along the Kemah Boardwalk.

a�? Write your vows in the peace and tranquility of the Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens.

a�? Enjoy a free concert at the Miller Outdoor Theatre.



The Old Dairy (Bath County, Virginia, US)


Whimsical, lovely, unconventional…if these are some of the words that immediately come to mind when thinking about your dream wedding, we found the perfect spot for you.


THE VENUE: The Old Dairy, located in Bath County, Virginia, was previously a fully functional dairy that operated for the better half of the 20th century. Now used by soon-to-be nuptials, the two silos are the perfect backdrop to exchange vows under twinkling lights, natural atmosphere, and with all your close friends surrounding you. We recommend you spend the evening twirling away until your feet hurt in the fully-restored dance hall.


WHERE TO STAY: Boasting amenities such as luxury interiors, master bedroom suites, soaking tubs, heated floors, large decks, and outdoor firepits, Homestead Preserve provides you and your guests with a secluded, romantic setting to unwind and relax surrounding the big day. Your party will have access to the exclusive Warm Springs Dairy Community Center, so you can choose to cool off in their outdoor pool, or maybe treat your body well with a visit the fitness center, whirlpool, and sauna.



a�? Attend a public concert at Garth Newel Music Center.

a�? Hike the Hidden Valley Trail.

a�? Hit the slopes on the Homestead Ski Area.

a�? Kayak down the Jackson River.

a�? Buy a fresh jar of jam from the Milk House Market.



The Brother’s Cove Lodge (Great Smoky Mountains, TN, US)


THE VENUE: If you enjoy adventure, beautiful views, and fresh mountain air, wea��ve got you covered. The Brothera��s Cove Lodge, at 450 acres, is the perfect place for the couple who needs the great outdoors to be an integral part of their experience. You can choose to promise your partner a lifetime together outside, while surrounded by the awe-inspiring mountain range, or inside, in front of floor-to-ceiling windows and beneath distinctive iron chandeliers.


WHERE TO STAY: No need to limit your guests to the main lodge, because surrounding the property are over 50 Brothera��s Cove cabins, each ranging in size and number of guests allowed. We recommend the Fireflies in the Night property, whose three stories can accommodate up to 20 people. Not only does it have seven bedrooms each equipped with their own flat-screen televisions and private en-suite baths, but it also boasts a kitchen, two dining tables, a fully functioning fireplace, a game room (with a pool table and bar), three decks, hammocks, picnic tables, and a grill. Whew.



a�? Try to catch a bite while fishing in the 2,100 miles of nearby streams.

a�? Get lost in the current of the Pidgeon River with white water rafting.

a�? Take the younger guests to explore their inner scientist at the Wonder Works Museum.

a�? Tempt vertigo by going to the top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle.

a�? Taste authentic moonshine at the Sugarlands Distilling Company.
