My FH and I have decided on a May 2005 wedding. We live in Chicago and want to either have a very small intimate wedding followed by a small reception and a 3-4 week honeymoon. Now, we don't have to do this in Chicago but want to be close enough that a short flight or a few hours drive could get us and our guests there. However, I am leaning more towards eloping and getting married at the start of the honeymoon. What I ask of you guys is picturesque midwest places and/or beautiful far and away places that you can recommend from experience.

Thank you so much!

Hmmm...close to Chicago, I'd say Door County Wisconsin.

Further away?...How about on a lake in Minnesota, or the Badlands of South Dakota, or even up in Canada in Banff?

Door County

Thanks Win, I checked out Door County and they only month I could get married there (weatherwise) is July. I will keep that in mind, as the date could change if necessary. It does look really nice.

Keep the ideas coming!

Has anyone gotten married on Mackinac Island?

But I've been there, and it's absolutely beautiful. Going there would, of course entail traveling around the island via horse drawn carriage, since they don't allow cars!

Far away place.. do you like the outdoors? How about trekking in Nepal and getting married there. The Himalayas is one of the most beautiful place I've seen. Or somewhere in the beaches of Thailand or the Philippines... good luck!

helicopter in is at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, in Havasupi Canyon...

Havasu falls...it's shown in the movie "Trial of Billy Jack".

I was there a long long time ago. I hiked in...and thought this must be Shangri La.

Mackinac Island is beautiful! Very charming little place. I visited some years ago with my best friend and her family. But there's the transportation issue like Winyan mentioned. Still, I think it would be a great place for a wedding.

Good luck in your search!
