Choosing a venue is one of the most important decisions to be made when bringing a wedding together. The location of your celebration largely determines the overall atmosphere and feel that you and your guests will remember for years to come. A venue, particularly when defined by having a show-stopping view, can act as the ultimate piece of décor and serve as the inspiration for the rest of your wedding’s design.

There is an art to perfectly highlighting a picturesque locale, and we’ve consulted with the experts on not only the best venues but tricks to make them look straight out of your dreams.


If you're planning your wedding around a gorgeous view, make sure to hire a videographer who has a drone at their disposal. The best way to capture a stunning location is from above, which only drone videography can allow for. Drone footage also creates a uniquely cinematic tone for your video that you will cherish for years to come. 


This Northwest Omaha venue offers two acres of outdoor space for you to utilize. With room for up to 250 guests, the venue allows for all of your loved ones to attend while still creating a uniquely private experience. Have your ceremony under their iron pergola, whose intricate detailing makes for a unique centerpiece. 


When touring your venue, make note of which spots are your favorite so you can report back to your photographer and craft a plan for the perfect wedding shoot. Get a few shots in which the view is the star of the show so you can always remember a piece of what made your day so special. This saves yourself time, too, since there's no need to trek to another location with a beautiful vista when it's right there at your celebration. 


Natural landscapes are the original fine art. So, treat them as you would any museum-worthy piece and give your venue’s view the gallery treatment. Your planner can help you pick out (or custom design) the perfect altar to frame your ceremony and vista while not overpowering the view. "We love when our brides use our white draping," says Darby Lounder, event and venue coordinator at Villa Aletta. "It adds a simple elegance to their special day."


“What really sets an outdoor wedding space apart is its uniqueness,” says Patricia Pierce, director of wedding and social events at Lied Lodge at Arbor Day Farm. “Couples want that stunning view you can’t get anywhere else — something their guests and they themselves will always remember. That’s what makes the lush and expansive Hazelnut Lawn at Lied Lodge so special. You’re surrounded by a truly unique backdrop of natural and architectural beauty.”
