21 Stunning Wedding Photos Captured in Breathtaking Destinations around the World

We've shared some gorgeous wedding photography on the Met in the past, but this year's display of Top 50 Destination Photos curated by Junebug Weddings includes some of the most stunning images of brides and grooms that we've ever seen. With over 4,000 submissions from more than 40 different countries, the contest was judged on how well each photo captures the love of the couple and the beauty of the destination.

From the lush Indonesian jungle, to crystal pools bordering arid deserts, to windy peaks atop magnificent peaks, each breathtaking location serves as an unforgettable backdrop to the journey of two people who have pledged their hearts to each other. Both romantic and utterly wanderlust-inducing, these photos will make you want to explore the world hand-in-hand with your loved ones. Scroll down to see some of our favorites, and check out the rest at Junebug Weddings.
