My 5 Favorite Wedding Venues in Syracuse & Central New York

Syracuse Wedding

Looking for a place to get married in Syracuse? Just about every week I get asked about the best wedding venues in Syracuse and Central New York, because people just don’t know where to start looking! The true number of great venues is hard to track, but today I’m going to share 7 of my favorites! Down below you’ll find a photo from each venue and a link to their website and Facebook page if possible!

Have a question about my experience at one of these venues? Just leave a comment at the bottom of the page and I’ll get back to you ASAP (I’m sure some of the venue managers will be eager to chime in as well).

Have another venue that you think slipped my mind, leave that in the comments as well. There are so many great venues, and these are not the only awesome places.

Here they are in no particular order:

Syracuse Marriott Downtown

A truly unique setting that is hard to match anywhere. This venue brings your guests straight back to the opulance and enchantment of the 1920s.  This is a “must” visit if you are planning a wedding in Central New York and have the word “elegant” in mind as an inspiration. Here’s a link to Meagan & Carlos’s Grand Ballroom Wedding and another link to Emily & Dave’s Persian Terrace Wedding.

The Lodge at Welch Allyn

While not exactly in Syracuse, The Lodge at Welch Allyn on the outskirts of the Village of Skaneateles is a must to check out for any couple that thinks they would enjoy flexible floor plan layouts in a modern rustic atmosphere. Here’s a link to Stephanie & Jim’s wedding as well as Matt & Kristi’s wedding.

Wolf Oak Acres

A wedding venue with the character of a barn or farm wedding along with the comforts that you want to afford your guests like easy access, air conditioning, and an indoor ceremony area.  These things are not easily found in a barn wedding venue! Check out Sarah & Ross’s Wolf Oak Acres wedding.

    I will 100% attest to the amazing venue that is Marriott Syracuse Downtown. The Grand Ballroom is incredibly breathtaking in every single way, and so spacious! I loved getting married in July, when the sun stays up much longer so we had gorgeous light until about 9pm. And Lindsey Cole was perfect at coordinating every detail of my day and with the vendors. Honestly I’m sure there’s about a million things that I didn’t even realize happened behind the scenes to make the day go smoothly. Lastly, if you’re already on this website to look for a photographer than you’re already heading in the right direction and can stop searching. Chris is wonderful!
