This is probably way off topic, but I have a question for American posters.
Is it customary in the U.S. to have the religious wedding ceremony outdoors, in the open air?
I noticed that Chelsea and Jenna did.
I my country, religious wedding ceremonies have to take place in a church.
Years ago, when I was a child, virtually all religious ceremonies here in the U.S. were indoors. Nowadays very few Protestant ministers, Catholic priests, or rabbis care. (In the case of the latter, they still want a chuppah, of course.) I understand the appeal of an outdoor wedding; however, in most parts of the U.S. the weather is variable (undependable), so people are taking a risk in planning one, IMO. As a guest, I prefer to be indoors.
