Outdoor Ceremony Locations that WOW!

Here at As you wish…, we love working with brides to find the perfect wedding venues for their big day! While oftentimes the reception location is the primary focus (because of course you need somewhere fabulous to party the night away), the right ceremony site can also shine in its own way and provide the ideal backdrop for those once-in-a-lifetime pictures as you say, “I do!”

A childhood church with sentimental value, the adorable chapel down the road, and the convenient and complementary space to your elaborate ballroom reception are all excellent options, but one of our absolute favorites is none other than the outdoor ceremony! As we enjoy the last bit of beautiful weather before the cold really sets in, we wanted to share a few of our top outdoor ceremony locations from some of our As you wish… weddings. Take a look and comment below to tell us which one is your favorite!


The Rosewood Crescent Hotel

Nothing says classic elegance like the beautiful courtyard at the Crescent! Tucked behind the hotel lobby, this space is easy on they eyes during the day…


… and even at night!


Dallas Museum of Art

If clean lines and modern spaces are more your style, consider what the DMA has to offer–fabulous artwork inside and with a touch of simple beauty outside. The trees in the Sculpture Garden made the perfect backdrop for both of these ceremonies!


Arlington Hall at Lee Park

Arlington Hall offers a few different options for outdoor ceremonies that go hand-in-hand with their ornate ballroom receptions. Whether on the steps in front of those gorgeous white pillars, or under the architecturally-stunning pavilion on the grounds, there are plenty of beautiful sights to take in!


Marie Gabrielle

Hidden away in Uptown Dallas, Marie Gabrielle is like your own personal secret garden. Sitting under a stunning canopy of trees, your guests will be blown away by their surroundings!


Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

The Arboretum definitely takes the cake for having the most versatile outdoor ceremony space–they have more ceremony location options than you can count on both hands! If you’re looking for a traditional garden wedding feel, this is the place for you!

Here is a look of three different Arboretum garden spaces…


The Westin Stonebriar

The Westin Stonebriar is the perfect location for a simple and stunning lawn wedding. It’s one our favorite locations away from the busyness of the city with plenty of charm to set your ceremony apart. Take a look at this beautiful wedding!


And finally…

Home Weddings

Whether your parents have acres of prime outdoor space or you’re hoping to transform your new home into a one-time wedding venue for your big day, home weddings add a level of sentimental value to your ceremony location. We would love nothing more than to help you find the right vendors to transform your space from backyard to beautiful!
