14 Open-Air Chapels That Will Rival Jason Mraz’s Outdoor Wedding Venue

When it comes to wedding venues, there’s just something about an airy space that takes your breath away. Maybe it’s Mother Nature’s way of adding her own romantic flair to your big day, or maybe it’s that jaw-dropping moment when the guests arrive and are totally floored. Whatever it is, celebrities are notorious for having the most coveted and fabulous ceremony sites that we’ve ever laid eyes on. For example, Jason Mraz’s fall wedding did not disappoint: We’re *still* head over heels for the open-air venue that the singer and his gorgeous bride chose for their big day. Lucky for you, there is more than just one open-air chapel out there, just waiting for you to set a date. Scroll down for a closer look at the swoon-worthy open-air chapels we’ve hunted down, just in time for you to say “I do.”

The sky’s the limit. Literally. (via Bayly and Moore)

To make it feel even more inviting, open the doors and let the breeze flow through your ceremony. (via Sylvie Gil Photography)

12. Race & Religious (New Orleans, LA): A little Southern-meets-European charm goes a long way with this gorgeous exposed-brick cottage. And a little bit (or a lotta bit) of string lights never hurt anybody. (via Race & Religious)
