My ceremony venue is a stone patio with a golf course behind it. I’m looking for some “alter” decorations to make it look more like a wedding. I’m thinking we’ll have a table for a wine box ceremony and a podium for our officiant (FI’s BIL), some flowers lining the aisle and flowers on the table, but it doesn’t seem like enough. Can I see pics of your outdoor ceremony? I love the look of the flower “walls” with strands of flowers hanging down, but I’m not sure how we’d construct/move that. Thanks!
I can’t seem to copy a pic of the ceremony space, but here’s the website. If you go to the photo album there’s some pics there. One wedding has an arch, but I’m not a fan of those (or gazebos)

If you love the look of flower curtains as a backdrop, it’s fairly easy to do.
Get two patio umbrella bases, insert a piece of pipe or large round wood pole(like an extra long closet rod) into which you have drilled a hole at the top.
String your flower curtain between the holes in the top of the pipe or rod. Paint the poles.
You could place an arrangement in front of the poles, if you like.
To go a completely different direction, you could use wine barrels on either side of the altar area with an arrangement on top.
This one has doors behind it to symbolize entering your new life together.
Doors can also be used alone
You could also string your floral curtain between two old doors that have wooden props attached to the back in place of the sheer curtains in this pic.
or paint old flat doors or sheets of plywood with matte black paint to look like a chalkboard, paint your design in white paint and seal with a matte clear sealer.
