The vows you and your groom state to each other and share with your guests are the most important hallmark of any wedding. But one aspect can truly put your ceremony over the top: A beyond-gorgeous backdrop.

Saying “I do” on a cliff overlooking the gorgeous blue of the ocean is sure to take your guests’ breath away. The same is true of a rustic ceremony held in a field, complete with a one-of-a-kind altar. These backdrops may cause your guests’ eyes (and possibly your own!) to wander, but beauty is worth a glance.

It was hard to choose, but we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite ceremony backdrops from Lover.ly that can only be labeled as beautiful:

A wooden altar, poms, and flowers create a rustic look that is simply stunning.
