A few weeks ago I was on a friend’s computer and found an article about a beautiful woodsy wedding. The bride and groom were married in the middle of a grove of large trees, with dense and lush greenery all around. The bride’s husband surprised her with a custom wedding aisle, made the day of the wedding with tree branches and logs that surrounded their event. They defined the wedding aisle by stacking many logs and branches on top of eachother, on both sides of the aisle, and then raked out the bark and dirt in the middle of the aisle.
I want to scrap the traditional cloth aisle runner and do this for our forest wedding, but I’m having a hard time convincing my FMIL that this really looks cool when done right!
I know my description is kind of vague, but if you know what I’m talking about, or if you guys have seen any other weddings where reclaimed logs/branches were used in designing the aisle, send me pics/links!!! Thanks!

That sounds pretty! I haven’t seen any pictures but I would check out OffbeatBride ( http://offbeatbride.ning.com ) for ideas as someone there may know of what to do or have visuals.

YES! That’s it! Thank you! I know, I just read my post again today and realized it was kind of vague! Where did you find this? I clicked on the link that was at the bottom of your post titled “source” but couldn’t find the article on this picture.

lol! I think I looked for branches, aisle, and wedding, and this is what google images gave me (after 12 pages of results!!) that kinda fit your description. . .
Truth to be told, I didn’t see it in a post from the blog I told you either, but since thats what google told me I just put the general link and not a link for the specific post. . .
Now that I’m looking back this is the post that apparently I skipped: http://eastsidebride.blogspot.com/2008/07/1000-wedding.html
and yeah, she is linking back to the original post at offbeat bride zippylef mentioned 🙂
btw, it looks beautiful and you should totally go for it!!

I’ve also heard/seen someone who’s FI made stepping stones for the aisle. Something they could display in their home later. It may have also been on offbeat bride?
