What made you choose to wed outdoors?

How did you come to the decision to wed outside vs. indoors?

I just didn't really want a church wedding...and the other venues I looked at (chapels, museums, etc) just didn't really do it for me.  But when I saw this garden, I thought it was perfect!

DH and I are both hikers, and he is a mountaineer.  We are not church-religious, so there was never a question that we would have an outdoor wedding.

First tim FI took me out to the lake I was blown away by the view. We shared a lot of time over there, talking how we felt about our relationship, about one and another and if we could really commit to each other. The place means so lot to us, there's just no other place we would wanna get married on this planet.

Every wedding I've been to has been in a room, frequently windowless, with no other purpose in life but to host events...it just seemed incredibly sterile.  I didn't want that. :)

I consider myself to be very romantic, so it made perfect since to get married in a garden setting and as we say our vows to one another;the sun is setting behind us!  Storybook!

I'm getting in Maui... I'm not sure it's even legal to get married inside there. :)

I didn't want to do the traditional church(I do attend so nothing having to do with religion) wedding and I wanted it too be more intimate and I love flowers. So, Im getting married in a garden full of flowers.

I would totally get married outside.  It's a good thing I don't have to choose because it would be VERY hard to, between the beach and a woodsy setting.   Maybe a lake, I could have both water and woods.


Of course I should probably let my groom (whoever he my be) have *some* say in the matter.  ;)

Two different religions - which church to use? Didn't want to offend either parents.


Plus - we are both too busy to run around looking at venues. So his yard is just the easiest - serves the purpose, and we can throw rice or petals or anything we want without restrictions.

We both love the outdoors and I really like the idea of being able to go back to our ceremony site every year on our anniversary. Our site is the ruins of an old wollen mill which is located in a conservation so we can go back every year and camp there. They have swimming, hiking, canoeing, caves etc. Plus, IMO nothing beats Mother Nature's decorating style :-)

We fell in love with our venue and it just happened to be all outdoors.  Plus we wanted to do something a little non traditional as well.

I'm a christian but FI isn't and I knew he'd feel uncomfortable in a church so we decided to have an outdoors wedding.

Well, my first wedding was in the church I grew up in and his first wedding was in the church he grew up in , so those were out.  Plus we want it to have a nice informal feel to it, so I think outdoors is perfect for that.

My FI is not religious and once we had chosen wine country, it just made sense to soak up as much of the environment as possible.

FI and I both love the outdoors; there's nothing like nature as a backdrop for your wedding. Also, we are not the traditional types - we both didn't want a cookie-cutter typ of wedding; we wanted something unconventional.

I'm not into church...  I believe in my beliefs (hehe, that's a weird sentence) however, I don't think you need to belong to a church to follow it :)


The outside has soo many possibilities and it's just gorgeous :)

we both love the outdoors and since we were getting married at a vineyard it was too beautiful not to have it out there :)
