Classic wedding venues—like places of worship and ballrooms—will always be in demand. That being said, unique wedding venues have really risen in popularity lately. More and more couples are choosing creative settings for their ceremonies and receptions. That’s because modern events aren’t as tied to tradition. In turn, lots of brides and grooms select locations that feel more personalized to them. Two perfect examples? Breweries and their close cousins, cideries.
