Wedding Venue Idea: Getting married in a cavern

By  | 

Wedding themes and venues are getting unique and unique as the years go by…who would've thought that you could get married in a cave?

I'm thinking specifically of Luray Caverns in Luray, Virginia. I grew up taking school field trips to these amazing limestone caves, and often dreamed of having my own wedding here after a tour guide on one of those field trips mentioned that couples can do that.

These limestone caverns, which are common in Virginia and West Virginia, have miles of gorgeous formations like the double column in the picture, which is nicknamed the Bride and Groom Formation, because it is the location of the wedding ceremonies held in the cave.You won't have to worry about weather in the caverns, because the temperature is steady around 55 degrees Fahrenheit all the time. There are more photograph opportunities than you can count, and guests are sure to call it one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever seen.

Don't leave the cavern without trying the stalacpipe organ, which is not your traditional organ. The organ pipes are actually made from the natural formations within the cave.Wheelchairs can get into the cave, but some parts of the pathway are difficult to navigate in a chair, so please take this into account if you have guests in wheelchairs. You may have to limit your guest list considerably, as there is a maximum head count allowed in the cave for ceremonies.
