Known as the most culturally liberal town in America, Ithaca a college town with a totally unique style. This style is reflected in the options available for wedding venues and reception halls. The whole home to both Cornell University and Ithaca College, the student population is about two thirds of the total population of the city.  Based on this fact, we will assume that the majority of weddings are for students.  If you are a student at Cornell University or Ithaca College, you can contact the campus administration to find out about any special wedding services.  Both campuses have churches and chapels.  These facilities are typically available for weddings.  If you are interested in a traditional church ceremony, this could be the lowest cost option except for a civil ceremony.  Many couples choose to have their reception that a second facility.  This is especially important if you plan on serving alcoholic beverages at your wedding reception, always a favorite with students.  Try to choose a wedding reception location that is close to the ceremony location so that is easier for your wedding guests to move from one site to another.

Since the town is also known as the 12th Hippest Hometown for Vegetarians, we can assume that many engaged couples would prefer to have an outdoor or garden ceremony. One option is to have a ceremony on the southern shore of Cayuga Lake. Tthe tall trees and serene lake can make for a lush and comfortable backdrop for any natural wedding.  The area is also host to a variety of parks.  Contact the park administration to find out that they allow weddings in these public spaces.  You may also want to expand your search into other areas of Tompkins County and New York to find the greatest selection of wedding ceremony locations and wedding reception halls. By searching each of the neighborhoods (Hamlet of Forest Home, Village of Lansing, Hamlet of South Hill, and the Village of Cayuga Heights), you can find the most ideal environment for your wedding and reception.  Depending on the season, you may also want to plan for both indoor and outdoor ceremony location.  This can make the event independent of the weather and allow you to have a peaceful and enjoyable wedding ceremony regardless of what happens with the weather.
