Planning the elegant wedding of your dreams? Luckily, there is no shortage of venues to choose from in Kentucky. Whether you’re looking for modern and contemporary, sophisticated and classic, or historic and timeless, there’s an elegant space for your wedding to take place in the Bluegrass state.
If you’re in the midst of wedding planning and need some venue inspiration, take a look at these six beautiful wedding venues in Kentucky.
Nestled on a 100-acre estate in Danville, Warrenwood Manor is the ideal setting for a dreamy rustic wedding. You can choose between two historic buildings on the property, which include a home and a barn, that are each bursting with Southern charm and provide ample space for both indoor and outdoor weddings.
The architectural structures at Louisville Water Tower Park, coupled with waterfront views of the Ohio River, provide a picturesque backdrop for your ceremony. Head indoors to the Grand Hall for your reception and you’ll be greeted with high ceilings and a brass staircase — a regal atmosphere all around.
The classic brick walls at this venue make the space feel cozy and charming while sophisticated features, like the 18-foot-tall windows in the dining room, add a modern touch. The Apiary also provides catering and event services to create a seamless dining and hospitality experience; consider them your one-stop-shop!
Located in downtown Bowling Green, this quaint space is full of historic charm. The 100-year-old brick walls and original hardwood floors are proof that timeless features make for a classic and elegant venue. And with a beautiful winding staircase leading to the entrance, get ready for the most picture-perfect wedding party photos.
This Louisville estate features a historic, antebellum-style mansion and plenty of spacious gardens worth exploring. Planning a winter wedding? Whitehall is especially beautiful when layered with a fresh coat of snow.
If you’re looking for a contemporary, design-focused venue, perhaps a museum is the type of space that would suit your wedding needs. The Speed Art Museum offers modern spaces accompanied by unique designs. Hold your ceremony indoors in the open-concept Atrium (surrounded by a reflecting pool), outdoors on the Grand Lawn or South Courtyard, and then head into the Grand Hall for a memorable reception.

-Megan, Mother of the Bride, Spring 2019 Wedding
“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
