When you have an incredible couple with the sweetest chemistry like Erin and Shane, just about any wedding venue seems romantic. But in their case, Chestnut Ridge Golf & Conference Center complemented their warm personality beautifully. The wooded golf course sprawls across southwestern Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. The Chestnut Ridge’s two 4.5-star courses have been featured in Golf Digest. But the mountainous region and award-winning resort also provide a breathtaking space for weddings. On this list of Pennsylvania wedding venues, this one deserves a top spot!
If you’re looking for a wedding weekend getaway, Chestnut Ridge—nestled within Laurel Highlands—is just over an hour from Pittsburgh. In addition to wedding festivities, the wedding party can relax at the spa after a round of golf or after a day of hiking or fishing. Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands are breathtaking year-round. The highlands blossom with native wildflowers in the spring, and they’re painted in warm reds and oranges in the fall. Even the winter, when the hillsides are blanketed in soft powdery snow, you can have the pastoral backdrop you’ve dreamed of for your wedding day.

There’s no one-size-fits-all wedding venue. That’s what I love about photographing weddings!

Let me know what you have in mind.
