    7 Reasons Your Destination Wedding Should Be in the Black Hills

  1.) Photos - Your only problem will be which spot to choose. Best part? Accessibility. And yes, you can get there in a wedding dress.     2.) Options - Close your eyes and picture your dream setting. Was it this?     Or this?     Or maybe this? Thought so. 2015-01-08-wedding-blog-synergy79-0041     3.) Photos - (Seriously, they’re going to be that good.) Plan as much time as you can. Then double it. Don’t worry—you don’t need to look perfect for the long shots.     4.) Crowds – As in, there aren’t any. Even during tourist season, it’s not overwhelmingly busy because there’s so much to do within a 100-mile radius. 2015-01-08-wedding-blog-synergy79-0040     5.) Bang for your Buck - You can have a lot more wedding because the scenery is free. Bonus for your guests: Area attractions are family-friendly and affordable.

Speaking of Wildlifethey roam freely here. Custer State Park, a top state attraction, is known for its herd of 1,300 free-roaming bison, and you can often get right in the middle of them. 2015-01-08-wedding-blog-synergy79-0007   7.)
