We were married at a church with an altar… BUT I think the same thing we did would work for you. We had a bunch small arrangements, some potted plants and even a few potted orchids and it looked really pretty and very natural. and it was super cheap and DIY.

How about outlining an area on the grass in flower petals at the end of the aisle, for you and your darling fella to stand in?  Perhaps in the shape of a circle.  It could be large enough for just the two of you or a little bigger to include your officiant.

Friends of ours recently did that at their beach wedding using shells.  As they explained it, it symbolized a "sacred" space for them to be united within.

We bought three tall double shepherd’s hooks and will hang either buckets of hydrangeas or potted blooming flowers.  I found the hooks for only $10 each at Tuesday Morning, but I know JoAnne’s crafts is having a 40% off sale on shepherds hooks right now.  Good luck!

You could rent some pillars and decorate, or even leave them simple and plain.  I like the idea of clearly defining the aisle with the petals.  The shepherds hooks are also a good idea to add a little decoration.
