Original wedding venues in the USA
The Empire State Building
Being one of the key sights in New York city, Empire State Building allows weddings only on the Valentine’s Day. Besides, not every couple is allowed to say their vows in the tallest building in New York: it is necessary to deserve the right to get married in this building by submitting your photo, love story and a rationalization of your intentions to get married in the Empire State Building.
Empire State Building: 350 Fifth Ave., Ste. 300, New York, NY 10018, (212) 736-3100.
If you are crazy about music, then you will love the idea of getting married in the house of the musical legend- Elvis Presley. Graceland Chapel provides with the opportunity of setting the wedding ceremony amid Presley’s Memphis home, which is both kitschy and distinctive. Besides, you will get a 15-minute photo session in front of Graceland.
Graceland: 3734 Elvis Presley Blvd., Memphis, TN 38116, (901) 332-3322.
There is no other place, which provides with such a big range of wedding backdrops as Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot theme park. If you dream of the destination wedding, but have the limited wedding budget, consider having your wedding in Epcot, which features 7 different country pavilions including Italy, France, Germany, Japan, China and UK.
Epcot: 1580 Avenue of the Stars, Lake Buena, Vista FL 32830, (321) 939-4610.
Land of Oz
It is probably one of the most magical venues in the United States. Land of Oz at Beech Mountain evokes the feel of Frank Baum’s novel, which is intensified with the symbolic Yellow Brick Road. Being the former amusement park, nowadays it is available for private events. Moreover, you can spend the wedding night in Dorothy’s House.
Land of Oz: 2669 South Beech Mountain Pkwy, Beech Mountain, NC 28604, (828) 387-2000.

You should get the special permits and fees in case you want to have the wedding ceremony on Borglum View Terrace of Mount Rushmore, but you won’t need the ones for setting the wedding ceremony in front of the sculptured rock with Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln images. The big plus is that the National Park Service doesn’t forbid food, drinks and candles on the terrace.
Mount Rushmore: 13000 Highway 244, Building 31, Suite 1, Keystone, SD 57751, (605) 574-3173.
