Best Outdoor Wedding Photos

Hosting your wedding ceremony outdoors can be risky, since we can’t control Ms. Mother Nature, but the reward is refreshing wedding photos you’ll want to display forever. A natural backdrop scene while you say your vows not only looks calming, but feels it! 

Outdoor Wedding Reception

We realize we stated an outdoor wedding ceremony is risky, but it is much more common than an outdoor reception. The timeframe of a wedding ceremony is typically much, much short than a reception, so if it happens to be a drizzly or scorching hot day, guests only have to sit through it for about an hour. Staying out in the tundra all night though, that is something to consider depending on your climate and the time of year. Extra measures may need to be taken to ensure guests aren’t dipping out early because of the heat, humidity, cold, or wind.

Despite the downfalls, plenty of couples insist on taking advantage of a great climate and continue the night on with a successful outdoor reception and we’ve got the photos to prove it!

Prepping for Weather with a Wedding Weather Report

Luckily, with historical weather information, you can prepare for what is to be expected on your wedding when it comes to the weather using your location and date.
