I've been collecting suggestions (thanks Mom) and have been drawn to several places. The most recent of which is Door County, Wisconsin.
- Door County is far enough away from home, but still only 7 hours which works well for planning visits, and transporting any DIY wedding stuff I may have.
- Absolutely no winter wedding (not that it's my top choice)
- 2 hours to a major airport (Green Bay: GRB)
I think it's definitely a good option!
