18 of Our Favorite Outdoor Ceremonies

If you choose to hold your ceremony outdoors, just about anything is possible. We’ve been through our archives and selected some of the most stunning sites where our couples have gotten married outside – from simple backyards, to mountaintops, to deserted beaches, even surrounded by skyscrapers! The best part? Decorations not required – Mother Nature (or sometimes a city architect!) has done the work for you.
