Picking the perfect venue for your wedding day can be a challenge. With so many venues out there to choose from, it can almost make your wedding day planning feel like a chore instead of a joyful and fulfilling experience. I created this resource to highlight the best wedding venues near State College, PA. I hope it will be of tremendous help to you!
Each of these wedding venues in Centre County comes with a unique flair, elegance and beauty that Central PA offers. As a State College wedding photographer, even I had a hard time narrowing down this list. 🙂 Beyond just the normal wedding day that your venue provides, I’ll highlight unique and stunning photo opportunities to capture the celebration of your love for one another for years to come!
Although not an extensive list, this hopefully will serve as a launching point for you to tell your love story in the most authentic and unforgettable way possible.

While most wedding venues have one ceremony location and one reception location, Juniata Valley Winery has *several* (and they’re all stunning). Couples have the ability to choose a more rustic barn-style location (Aisling Hall) or choose a more traditional Georgian-style location (The Manor) to say their vows in front of family and friends. Better yet, each venue on-site comes with overnight guest accommodations to make the wedding an event to remember for friends and family!
