Anything on the water or with an ocean, lake or river view can be a dramatic and appealing locale for a wedding. A nautical theme offers lots of design opportunities too. Just remember that water related venues may look beguiling on sunny spring days but appear bleak, gray and forbidding in bad weather. Even so, there's something about the water that makes festive occasions even more special, so swab the decks and check out the options.
Some interesting candidates are: ferries, houseboats, dockside restaurants and parks near or on waterways.
