We're approaching summer and many of you may be thinking of having an outdoor wedding. Although outdoor weddings can be very beautiful because of the scenery, there are a few things to take into consideration. Make sure to have a back up plan in case of inclement weather (rain, wind or extreme heat). A tent can be an easy fix! Other things to be prepared for - bugs, permits and a menu that can withstand the heat.
Layla and Arend had a casual but elegant "beach" themed wedding along Lake Michigan. While the bride and groom wore very understated and neutral colored attire, the wedding was punctuated with varying shades of pink, from the bridesmaid's dresses to the bouquets! After the ceremony, guests continued the celebration underneath the stars in a tent - which is a great alternative for outdoor weddings! (This Real Wedding was featured on the Wedding Paper Diva's blog - check it out to see even more pictures from this amazing wedding)
Lindsay and Clark had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at a ranch in Houston, Texas. The bride and groom got married under a trellis on the ranch grounds and transformed a basketball pavilion for their reception! Also check out their urban engagement session!
This Texas wedding is both sophisticated and modern. Amy and Graham opted for a chic outdoor wedding ceremony punctuated with twinkle lights and yellow and white accents. They took advantage of the city of Dallas for their wedding portraits which made for some great industrial style photos.

We asked our past brides via Facebook to upload their favorite portrait from their wedding and other Bella brides and fans would vote for their favorite. Congratulations to Jamie and Matt who are our June winners. Their beautiful wedding is featured below!
How they met: Jamie and Matt met in college at a weight training class that they had both randomly signed up for. "Matt tells everyone I gazed into his eyes the first time I saw him!"
The proposal: Matt proposed to Jamie in their home they had bought together during Easter weekend. "It was perfect because we had all weekend to celebrate with friends and family"
The Wedding: They had a very intimate wedding (only 85 guests!) at a gorgeous castle which had always been one of Jamie's dreams! "Our wedding day was perfect! It called for rain all day but luckily, the weather held out as most of our plans were outside! It rained for about ten minutes during the reception just for good luck"
On Bella Pictures: "Working with Bella was absolutely perfect! I can't even tell you how many compliments we got about our photographer that day. He was fabulous to work with! We love our photographs so much and couldn't be happier :)"
Funny story about the wedding day: "Our ceremony was short and sweet. I thought I would cry more than I did but as soon as I saw Matt I was nothing but perfectly happy. I only choked up once, right before I said for richer or poorer. Matt told me he thought I just didn't want to say poorer!"
