If you're dreaming of a destination wedding but are restricted to domestic locations, you actually have a lot more scenic options than you might realize. The East coast and West coast along with some Southern gems offer amazing views, cultural experiences, and top-notch service.

Check out some of our favorite spots for an "at home" destination wedding celebration.
