For newly engaged couples planning a wedding, Rapid City in South Dakota is one epic place to tie the knot.
There are many kinds of wedding venues to choose from, including barns, wineries, ranches, lodges, churches, resorts, hotels, country clubs, event centers and gardens. Then there are some unique random venues like no other (more about those later). You have dozens of wonderful venues to choose from, so where to start? With a glass of wine, pen and paper and your computer - let's go venue shopping!
If you have an idea of guest numbers, budget and the style of wedding you want, it will help narrow down your options. Also, think about if you prefer an indoor or outdoor ceremony. Many Rapid City wedding venues promote an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, which gives you the best of both worlds.
Here are some inspirational venues as a starting point as you look around for your wedding venue.
Chapel In The Hills is the most charming place to get married. This immaculate wooden chapel set amongst the pines looks like something out of a movie scene. In summer, flowers bloom all around surrounding gardens, and it also looks like a wintery wonderland covered in snow. You could get married in front of the chapel or inside. Either way, the wedding video will be totally amazing!
The Black Hills Receptions and Rentals is a gorgeous wedding venue surrounded by rolling hills, natural forests, and pretty gardens. Everything you need is there, including tent, furniture, lighting and décor rentals, so you can easily style your venue to suit your theme.
Summer Creek Inn is another Rapid City wedding venue that is as beautiful as a picture. With beautiful suites, you and your guests can stay for a few nights and make the most of your event celebrations. The venue comes with beautiful wide-open spaces for the ceremony and reception and many gorgeous areas for the wedding videography.
High Country Guest Ranch is an amazing venue in the Black Hills where you might wear cowboy boots under your wedding dress for the dancing at the reception. The serene setting is rustically romantic, with green meadows as a backdrop to the ceremony venue and maybe a horse roaming around in the distance. This is such a beautiful country-style venue and the newlyweds stay in the cute log cabin on their wedding night too!
Looking For Somewhere Different?
For a truly unique venue, the Hay Camp Brewing Company is a modern wedding venue with separate spaces for intimate and large weddings. Getting married at a craft brewery that I would describe as good times in a rustic yet urban setting is undoubtedly different. The groom's friends will probably be congratulating him on getting married in a brewery that could never run out of drinks.
This beautiful corner of the earth near Black Hills National Forest is spectacular, so it's no wonder there are so many wedding venues. Take your time to research and find the perfect place for your love story to unfold.
