Harry P. Leu Gardens

By now you’re probably wondering what other wedding venues make up my top five list after Dubsdread, which I blogged about on Nov. 2. Leu Gardens joins my list because it offers incredible garden spots for ceremonies as well as well-appointed indoor reception facilities (indoor space also works for ceremonies if inclement weather occurs). My favorite spot for ceremonies is the Leu House Museum front lawn (pictured here). Be sure to reserve your wedding date early; this venue books very quickly. And be aware of its reservation policies—ceremonies get a two-hour block and receptions get a four-hour block, with predetermined days and times available. For more info visit leugardens.org
