Ok, my SO is Catholic and told me the other day he wants to be married by the church, but not necessarily at the church. Is that something that Catholics do? I don't know, I was raised Christian, but if he wants to be married Catholic, fine with me, I'm not as "religious" as he is, and the way I see it, as long as we are going to church, reading the bible, and believe in God, I am fine with it. But can we be married by a priest OUTSIDE of the church?

A Catholic needs to get premission to have a wedding in a place other than a Catholic church. Because Church law states that a wedding may be held in "some other suitable place" besides a Catholic church, it is technically possible that the local bishop might allow outdoor weddings, but few do. You'll have to talk with the priest. Although there are some dioceses that actually have specific places outdoors where Mass (and so weddings) are celebrated. The Catholic Wedding Help website might be able to answer other questions for you.
