With the beautiful weather here, it is impossible not to think of having a wedding ceremony and even the reception outdoors! If you are the type of couple that prefers the outdoors, considering an outdoor wedding ceremony may just be perfect for your special day!

Here are five reasons why you would want to consider an outdoor wedding ceremony:

1. Beautiful weather - While beautiful weather on your wedding day makes the day even more special and memorable no matter if you have it indoors or outdoors, having the ceremony outdoors allows you as a couple to take full advantage of what nature has to offer!

2. No Indoor Limitations - Having the wedding ceremony outdoors allows the couple to get creative with how they want the ceremony to look and feel. You aren't restricted to the look of the venue, church or synagogue. And many places have limits to decor too. Having the wedding ceremony outdoors frees the couple from limitations, so go nuts!
