Most wedding planning is full of compromises. You want a beautiful setting, but you’re on a budget. You want small-town charm and a backdrop of natural beauty, but most of your guests live in the city. You want the pleasure of choosing all the details that will make your wedding meaningful and unique, but you don’t want the headache of managing all those details when you should be celebrating your love and enjoying time with family and friends.
But with Danville as your wedding destination, there’s no need for compromise. The venues listed below are only three of the many options Danville offers for a couple planning their perfect wedding day.
Whether you’d prefer a large and elegant affair or a quiet, intimate ceremony, Warrenwood Manor has the right venue for you.
The manor house itself is a stunning example of the Gothic style, built in the mid-1850s by the Warren family, descendants of a minuteman who settled in the area after the Revolutionary War. Your guests will enter through a doorway flanked by leaded Venetian glass into a stunning home with fourteen-foot ceilings and gorgeous walnut mantels and woodwork. Or you can invite them for a ceremony outside, with the manor as a stately backdrop.
For a smaller venue on the same beautifully kept grounds, gather family and friends at the venue’s simple, red-brick cottage, where you can say your vows on the front steps as a Kentucky sunset tints the sky. Or have a fun, informal ceremony in Warrenwood’s large barn, strung with twinkling lights under which you and your guests can dance the night away.
As an award-winning venue through TheKnot.com (“Best of Weddings” 2017 and 2018) and WeddingWire (“Couples’ Choice Award” 2016, 2017 and 2018), Warrenwood Manor has the extensive facilities and enthusiastic staff you’ll need to plan a beautiful, relaxed and joyful wedding day.
Bluegrass Wedding Barn
Nestled on a 76-acre site, Bluegrass Wedding Barn’s indoor and outdoor event spaces combine stunning natural beauty and vintage charm with modern conveniences to help your big day go smoothly.
The large main barn rises airily to strings of white lights and crystal drop chandeliers that cast a lovely glow over the honey-colored wood of the crisscrossed rafters. Touches like masses of flowers in bourbon barrels, or weathered chalkboards with a special message for your guests, add just the right amount of whimsy and fun. Just outside, a colonnaded veranda looks out on beautiful Central Kentucky hill country.
Or if you want to say your vows outdoors, you can gather before a simple, wooden arch with the Bluegrass sky as your backdrop, or wed at the edge of the venue’s tranquil pond as its graceful fountain lights up the night behind you. Even a snowy day is a winter wonderland at Bluegrass Wedding Barn.
The staff at Bluegrass Wedding Barn specializes in making planning and logistics easy and stress-free. They take care of as many of the details as you’d like. Just share your plans and dreams with Bluegrass Wedding Barn’s capable and caring staff, and they’ll take care of the rest, with no hidden or added fees. You can simply relax and walk into your dream wedding.
Arcadia Farm’s expansive 625 acres offer up both the dazzling elegance of its Historic Shelby Manor and the pastoral simplicity of its Arcadia Wedding Barn.
The manor, built in 1836 by Isaac Shelby, Kentucky’s first governor, is nestled in beautifully manicured green space, all gated for privacy. Its dazzling neoclassical façade and four square-set brick chimneys greet your guests in style, and as they come inside they’ll be enchanted by the cut-glass chandeliers and richly polished woodwork of days gone by. The manor has also recently become a B&B, so couples and their guests have the option of staying overnight in this beautiful setting.
Also on the grounds is a unique, multi-sided, cupola-topped wedding barn that’s the perfect venue for a couple who want a more intimate, but equally refined, setting. Many windows offer expansive views of the surrounding countryside, while antiqued mirrors inside reflect tiny lights strung across the gabled ceiling above.
Arcadia is also a 2017 recipient of WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award, and the friendly staff offers flexible wedding packages that allow bridal couples to choose exactly what’s right for their own special day.
