I think that would look great you walking down to different aisles or you could both still walk down the aisle, one in front of the other 🙂

@hgwells:  What about coming down the aisle together, with your dads between you?  Of, if you want to have some fun with it, one of you could walk 6 feet, then you could take turns walking 12 feet, until you both reach the front.

@hgwells:  It’s probably not a popular choice since the first bride wouldn’t have anybody waiting on her, but perhaps you could BOTH walk down the aisle with your dads, one after the other, with your bridal party waiting at the alter w/ the officiant.

It’s such  a special part of the ceremony that I don’t feel like either of you should have to give it up. Maybe flip a coin to see who walks first..?

@hgwells:  I saw a beautifulcircle arrangement for a ceremony on pinterest, maybe you could walk toward each other, and meet in the middle?

 

Im not sure about pictures it would depend on your photographer. I had my photographer and his assistant, so one shot me coming download while the other sHot my husband waiting for me at the end!

If I find that picture, I’ll try to post it here for you to see 🙂

If you have two photographers and the ability to set the chairs up however you want,  I think seating in the round with aisle across from each other so you both still get to walk the aisles but also get to see each other walk the aisle too. Then you meet at the middle at the alter. I wish I could post a pic of what I am thinking by my phone wont let me.

Something like this though:

I agree with the PP’s who said two aisles. Since you’re outdoors I assume there’s some flexibility in the set-up, what if the two aisles formed a “V” so the photographer could get shots of the two of you walking with your dads at the same time? It’d be a really cool perspective.

Hey fellow Atlantan!

My wife and I didn’t want to walk with our dads, but we came down separate aisles that joined halfway up. So we both came in separately, but then entered the actual ceremony together. I thought it was a fitting metaphor for marriage. You could easily do something similar and just add your dads. 

 

But I also love the round ceremony with aisles out both ends idea if you could make it work.

@moonadea:  I really like this idea!

Also, OP, is your username a nod to Warehouse 13?

I agree have you both walking up two aisles would look amazing!!! If you only have one photographer make sure they are aware and can be waiting for you at the alter and capturing you both

@hgwells:  i’ve seen the ceremony in the round (like theater in the round) where the alter is in the center and essentially there are 4 aisles because the chairs are surrounding on all sides. i think this would work with a larger guest list.

instead you could make it semi-circle and have 2 aisles instead of 4.

or you could walk in from opposite sides towards each other.

ETA:  i swear i didn’t read the posts above me until after i posted.  but funny we chose the same pic.  it was the first one that popped up on google images.
