After you and your partner change your relationship status from dating to engaged, there is a lot of planning to be had (after you can stop staring at your new bling, of course). When you actually start to plan your wedding one of the first big to-dos to check off your list is usually finding a venue. And with the location selection there is one big decision to be made: outside or in? If you’re having a hard time choosing we suggest you take a hint from Jason Mraz’s wedding.
The singer recently wed his longtime girlfriend Tina Carano this past weekend. Mraz shared a photo of the beautiful venue and his stunning bride on his Instagram alongside the caption “Today I was made the luckiest man in the world.” After taking in the autumnal scenery, we were totally awed by the floating frames that surrounded the ceremony and its ability to give off an illusion of being inside while still allowing for a 360-degree view of the outdoors.
It turns out Mraz’s wedding took place at the historic Polegreen Church in Mechanicsville, Virginia (where Mraz grew up). The church was built in the 1700’s and serves as a reminder of religious liberty in pre-revolutionary America. The original church has been destroyed but the site is still honored with these white frames.
While your wedding might not be held on a slice of great American history, the artistic and clean vibe the church gives off could easily be replicated with a little bit of DIY woodworking. If you’re thinking about a backyard or garden wedding but want to give the location a little something extra (and original) this DIY wedding idea could be a great way to do just that.
