As the capital of Florida, Tallahassee is a popular wedding spot with couples from near and far. The first thing to spring to mind when you think of a Tallahassee wedding is likely a traditional Southern-style celebration on an elegant plantation lawn, and if that's what you want, you won't be disappointed; antebellum mansions surrounded by Spanish moss-draped trees abound. However, there are plenty of other venues as well, including modern hotels, historic farms, and lush botanical gardens. Whether you're looking for traditional elegance, industrial chic, or something in between, here are the best wedding venues in Tallahassee.
