Outdoor Wedding

Some couples just need a little more room to breathe when they exchange vows in front of their friends and family. The outdoors are a great choice for a wedding location, especially for spring weddings, summer weddings and fall weddings, when the weather is just right. There’s really no end to the possibilities. Under a canopy of lush green leaves in the forest, on a pristine white-sand beach, in a valley with a view of the mountains, in the backyard of your childhood home. We love being outside as much as you do, and hope these outdoor weddings we’ve shot will give you some great ideas for creating the perfect wedding location for you.
