Are you planning a wedding and want it to be unique and unforgettable? Anyone can have the traditional wedding at a church with a reception at a hall or ballroom somewhere near by, but what about tying the knot in an unusual place. Not everyone can afford to travel to an exotic island and have all their loved ones travel there as well, so why not find a place just as amazing in the United States! BuzzFeed DIY researched all of the coolest places to get married in the USA and put it together in one article names “22 of the Coolest Places to Get Married in the USA”.

The Artisan Ballroom was destroyed in a fire in 2010 and was rebuilt to be bigger and better. With massive 1000 pound metal doors and copper leaves around the cedar posts and door handles. The entry was inspired by a Parisian entry and a tiara, and utilized the charred timbers of the original ballroom’s frame. artisan ballroom
