Located in Cape Neddick, along the southern coast of Maine, Cliff House is a hotel resort that offers it all! From an onsite chef to wellness packages and stunning ocean views, this East Coast wedding venue caters to weddings of all kinds. The hotel offers both indoor and outdoor locations for your ceremony allowing for weddings any time of year.

It’s no secret that I am OBSESSED with Charleston. If you need proof, just check out these Charleston engagement photos where I also share a little bit about why I love this town so much! Not only is Charleston located near some of South Carolina’s best beaches (if you dream of a beach wedding THIS is the place!), but the city is also filled with grand architecture, cobblestone streets, and bright-colored buildings that add such a fun flair and bit of southern elegance to this historic city.

Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency in Savannah, Georgia is so much more than just your average hotel! Not only does this hotel offer a full-service accommodation experience, but it also acts as a wedding venue. With flexible event spaces and lovely views of the Savannah River and the Talmadge Bridge, this venue is the perfect place to host a Georgia wedding. The venue offers a variety of wedding packages and the ability to host up to 500 guests which makes it one of the top wedding venues on the East Coast!

Grand Lawn at Bella Collina

You don’t have to travel halfway around the world to get those incredible Italy destination wedding vibes. Located in the heart of Orland, FL surrounded by rolling hills and picturesque views, lies Bella Collina. Known as Orlando’s premier destination wedding venue, Bella Collina consists of multiple wedding venues in a variety of styles. I especially love the Grand Lawn venue because it makes you feel like you’ve been transported over to Italy. The lawn provides panoramic views of lakes Siena and Apopka and is surrounded by lush gardens with a Tuscan-inspired building at the center. I could gush on and on about this East Coast wedding venue, but it’s really one that you just have to experience for yourself!

Little Palm Island Resort, Little Torch Key

You guys are not ready for this last East Coast wedding venue! Little Palm Island is – well, you guessed it – located on an island. But not just any island, a private island! In fact, guests of this resort island can only gain access to it by seaplane or private boat. Talk about an experience! Little Palm Island is known to be America’s only private island resort, and with its Balinese-inspired design, you can experience all the luxuries of a tropical resort wedding while saying ‘I Do’. 

While there are many amazing places to get married, the East Coast truly has some of the most incredible wedding venues in the world. Whether you want a tropical wedding venue, a luxury wedding venue, or a coastal wedding venue, there are plenty of options to choose from.

In fact, I love these East Coast wedding venues so much that I am currently offering a 30% discount to couples who book any of the venues above. If you’re ready to start planning your East Coast wedding, click the contact button below and let’s get this party started!
