Fans of Netflix‘s cult-favorite reality series Terrace House will remember Karuizawa, the Japanese resort town where the most recent season of the show was set in. Boasting a number of beautiful churches and cathedrals, this particular area of Japan is a popular wedding destination.
Pictured above is the Kendrick Bangs Kellogg-designed Uchimura Kanzo Memorial Stone Church, one of the most famous architecture in the quaint town that’s frequently used for weddings. The structure is surrounded by greenery, while on the inside, the natural light-filled space is beautifully designed with a mix of stone, concrete and vegetation.
Run by Spanish singer-songwriter Russian Red and her husband, musician Zach Leigh, The Ruby Street is perhaps one of the coolest event spaces in Los Angeles. Located in the Highland Park neighborhood, the former church has been revamped by the couple into a more than 8,300 square foot indoor-outdoor venue, furnished with unique, custom and vintage pieces throughout. The stained glass windows have been restored as well, serving as a colorful backdrop for wedding ceremonies.
If you’ve always dreamed about getting married in a 14th-century palace, check out Morocco‘s Ksar Char-Bagh. The luxury hotel is situated in the heart of the palm grove of Marrakech and is well-known for its stunning architecture, with its restaurant terrace overlooking an outdoor pool and gardens filled with palm trees.

Formerly used by the royal family in the 17th and 18th centuries, the Queen’s House in Greenwich, London is the first classical building in England and is often dubbed one of the most historically significant buildings in British architectural history. The exquisitely decorated space is now part of the National Maritime Museum and can be booked as a wedding venue. From the iconic spiral Tulip Stairs to the high-ceiling Great Hall characterized by its geometric marble flooring, every corner of this dreamy location looks like something straight out of a painting.
With a breathtaking view of the ocean in the background, the Alila Villas Uluwatu resort in Bali, Indonesia offers a picturesque setting for any intimate occassion.
