You don’t need much. Maybe some flowers trailing along the logs on either side.

You could do some sort of blanket to stand on or of course some sort of arbor, but I really don’t think you need a lot or it will take away from the beauty of the place.

I agree, you don’t really need much because the view is so beautiful!

Do you plan on standing on the upper lawn with the lake in the background?

Will the guests be on the lower level facing towards the camera, or behind where the camera would have been for this shot?

If so, I too would keep it simple as you are obviously a nature lover to choose that location.

If you want an arch, you could bring a portable metal garden arch, or make one out of branches onsite.

You could bring a couple of pots from the nursery-climbing roses or a vine. Place one on each side of the arch and secure the rose bush or vines to the arch with garden ties.


You could bring rectangular wooden planter boxes and pots of something simple like daisies to place on top of the horizontal logs that make the retaining wall. Cover the pots with sheet moss. This way the planters are much lighter than if you planted them up with soil  and flowers.

If you don’t want to go to this extent, you can bring up a couple of planters and jsut place them on the logs on either side.

I was going to suggest another possibilty- attaching flower baskets on the vetical poles with a clamp like this buit it wouldn’t be visible during the ceremony if you are standing on the camera side of the picture.
