Everyone stands up and excitedly turns their head as the bride begins to process down the aisle. It's the moment everyone's been waiting for. Often rivaling this momentous scene are the beautiful ceremony settings. We bring you three that have especially wowed us recently. Courtesy of, what else, Pinterest:

1. Brittany and Craig in Beacon, NY: These two foodie sweethearts chose an 18th-century Dutch Colonial homestead to host their rustic wedding day. In this shot, nearly 100 of the couples family and friends sat in the circa-1740 Dutch-style barn with wildflowers and candles gracing the aisle. We can practically hear the creaky wooden floor and rushing Hudson River nearby. (Photo: Courtesy of Jose Reyes Photography)

2. Kate & Michael in Santa Barbara, CA: Now San Diego-based, this couple decided to return to the scene of where they first met for their wedding day. At the 5 p.m. ceremony, held on a bluff, the couple exchanged vows beneath a chiffon-draped canopy. We love the baskets adorning the aisles that hold umbrellas to shield the sun. What a cute idea!

3. Alyssa and Kevin in Bay Harbor, MI: After meeting as lab partners in college, these two settled on Alyssa's childhood vacation spot as the backdrop for their classic lake-side affair. The ceremony, however, took place at the breath-taking St. Francis Xavier Parish. The sky-high arches and stained-glass are seriously magnificent in this shot. And according to the bride, with a church like that "[you don't] need much additional decor." (Photo: Courtesy of Weber Photography)
