Fall Wedding Destinations

Fall Wedding Locations

Planning a fall wedding?  Congratulations! Fall is a great time for a wedding. Things have calmed down from the rush of summer weddings, while the weather is turning cooler and the leaves are turning brilliant colors, which makes many areas of New England highly favorable for Fall weddings, elopement weddings and weddingmoons.

Fall is also a time of harvest, with many harvest festivals underway in many cities, which makes it a good time to also consider weddings in vineyards or wineries, farms, barns and orchards. Check out our list of great Fall wedding locations, with emphasis on barns, orchards and vineyards, many of them located in New England. We also list a couple of old churches which you might find appealing.
