Indoor Venues As A Backup Option in Kentucky

Outdoor Venues with an Indoor Backup Option

If you are getting married in the winter time you may be worried about rain or snow. Having an outdoor setting with the option of an indoor venues is the way to go during any season in Kentucky. Want a nice blend of a scenic outdoor ceremony and an air-conditioned reception? No matter the reason or the season, having a location with the option to host your wedding inside is a smart idea.

The Apiary Wedding Venue

For a truly unique and elegant indoor/outdoor venue right in the heart of Downtown Lexington, The Apiary is a top choice. With an outdoor garden area next to a historic brick building with over 8000 square feet in usable space, this location is a hidden gem unlike any other in the area. It’s a fantastic option for urban weddings with an old-time style. The Apiary is one of my favorite wedding venues in all of Kentucky. It is definitely a must see!

Keeneland Wedding Venue

The venues at Keeneland beautifully balance Kentucky history with modern elegance. Two of their wedding location options, the Entertainment Center and Keene Place, offer couples the flexibility of celebrating their big day both outdoors and indoors. The Entertainment Center & Keene Barn is a venue that’s perfect for larger weddings: tall ceilings inside and a large lawn outside provide plenty of space for a wedding with a high guest count to still feel inviting and comfortable.

Keene Place is more suited for smaller, more intimate weddings with a Southern charm. Tall trees near the lawn of this historic home can give some cooler shade even for weddings in the hottest months of the year. Keeneland also has a few other indoor options that vary in space and style, so it’s definitely one to consider for those who love a variety of options!

The Round Barn

You could also consider saying your vows on the lawn outside of a Lexington historic landmark: the Round Barn Stable of Memories! This beautiful building has been around since the late 1800s, and has since been turned into an elegant space for weddings. The inside of the four-story barn is a perfect indoor location for receptions, and even has enough room for over 200 guests to sit and mingle comfortably for your big day.

The Carrick House

Looking for a location with a classic look and historic vibe that offers the flexibility of both indoor and outdoor options? Take a look at The Carrick House Wedding Venue!

It’s a beautiful, white mansion that is commonly used for outdoor ceremonies on the lawn and indoor receptions. And one of the best perks of this spot is that it’s in the heart of town, with easy access to hotels and other weekend activities for your wedding guests!

The Loudoun House

For couples looking for a wedding venue unlike any other in Lexington, the Loudoun House Wedding Venue is one of the best options around. Not only is this building a beautiful example of Gothic Revival architecture, but it’s a wonderful choice for an outdoor wedding with a unique backdrop. And one of the best perks? You have the option to use the inside of the building as well, which doubles as an art gallery during the day.

Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa

Few other venues in Lexington offer such an elegant Southern charm as the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa does. Couples who get married here get to choose between the Mansion Lawn and the Overlook by the lake for a beautiful, classic outdoor wedding ceremony. It’s a fantastic option for those who love history, since it’s an authentic 19th-century mansion, complete with chandeliers, tall white pillars, and a grand staircase.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
