Even those who have never bounced east of the Mississippi have a picturesque fantasy about the Hamptons. They see sleepy thin fences hugging wooden lovebird boardwalks with splashes of long, wavy grass rolling against the beach. They see a foggy breeze giving the New York coastline a nostalgic palette of muted colors. They see themselves celebrating romance beneath pale beach ball lanterns aglow in a class-act tent with the warmest cheer you can find after sunset.
VENUE TYPE: Garden / Greenhouse
There are moments that capture your heart, give it pause, and allow you to admit to yourself that not everyone is lucky enough to be where you are and have your life. Overlooking the sea while sipping a cocktail, surrounded by vineyards, mountains, and olive orchards, with your luxury tent behind you is almost assuredly one of those instances. That’s one of the (very many) reasons people adore a glamping stay at Cabañas Cuatro Cuatros.
In the twinkling desertscape of Texas, polished glass structures, invigorated by metal and stone, capture the eye and fascination of any traveler lucky enough to roll through the small town of Driftwood. As rural as it may be, Driftwood endures as a slice of Americana that melts a dreamer’s cowboy heart, so it’s fitting that tucked away in its countryside community is a spectacular home-on-the-range venue that’s equal parts stylish modernity and old-world elegance.
The Greenhouse at Driftwood, owned by the same family for generations, has become a beloved destination for romantics wanting to tie the knot surrounded by century-old oaks and cacti. Just southwest of Austin, the venue is as much a savior of its surrounding environment as it is a key component of the scenery itself. The gorgeous open space uses rainwater collection as its primary source for flora and fauna alike, while helping conserve local wildlife and bird habitats. Plus, the grounds are beyond stunning.
Secluded, serene, historic, and spectacular are just a few adjectives we can think of to describe these gorgeous garden grounds. Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park is a fifty-acre public garden sanctuary found in Canandaigua, New York, and has been standing tall since the early nineteenth century. The property as a whole blends a variety of floral themes, ranging from Medieval walled and Italian Renaissance to English vistas and Japanese rock gardens. In the middle of these lush and vibrant gardens, rests a dreamy Victorian/Queen-Anne-styled estate, perfect for a stylish and elegant wedding.
The designers and architects of this “hill country dream” knew what they were doing when they developed the beautiful Camp Lucy. Nestled on a remarkable ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas, Mother Nature has blessed this special event and luxury accommodations venue with grand ancient oak trees, winding pathways, landscaped garden grounds, glistening creeks, floral arches, and white-oak timber buildings. When a person is as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, there’s even more to love about them, right? Featuring an outstanding chapel with dramatic French-Colonial style and old-world brick courtyards, we can all testify, similarly to that of a person, that the inside of this property definitely matches the outside, giving it five stars from us! From their world-class services and warm hospitality to the breathtaking natural location and modern amenities, it’s easily understood why Camp Lucy has received such recognition and acclaim for this impeccably maintained property.
