Fairmont Le Château Frontenac – Quebec City, Que.
With its cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages, it’s hard to feel anything but romantic in Canada’s oldest city. But step inside Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and that sentiment is magnified tenfold. With the magic of the right wedding planner and a whole lot of Pinterest browsing, The Cellier, which has seen couples walk down its aisle since 1893, has the ability to reinvent itself into the most regal of rooms. Plus, with its plush carpeted aisle, you’ll forget cold feet were ever a thing.

Biltmore Estate – Asheville, North Carolina
This estate isn’t advertised as a castle but it might as well be. The Biltmore is the United States’ largest estate at 8,000 square feet, with panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and southern hospitality-done-ritzy. In true nineteenth-century fashion, they offer horse-drawn carriage rides to the altar – just one of the many reasons to tie the knot in a North Caroline estate of mind.

El Secreto – Ambergris Caye, Belize
Fairytales were once reserved for Disney books, but at this Central American dream spot, you can have your wedding cake and eat it, too. El Secreto is literally their best-kept secret. Arrive on a speedboat to your “honeymoon villa,” throw on your dress, and have your best bridesmaids ensure your train doesn’t get caught in the sand. Putting run-of-the-mill beach weddings to shame since the Mayan era, the adjacent tropical barrier reef is only second to Australia’s. From underwater caves to jungles, it won’t be hard to find the perfect spot to utter those two words.
