Do you think you can drape the poles in something? I think if you could drape them with organza or something and then hang faux string crystals or vines whatever kind of feel you are going for.

If you are getting married at night, it would also look super awesome with tons of candles. I mean tons of them. I can imagine it now lol

Hi!
Love it! I think it’s really unique. 🙂

What time is your ceremony and what kind of look are you going for?

My first thought is DIY potted plants to line the “aisle”. The area in the middle where there are no seats.
I would use the red poles to your advantage and use them as columns to make an arbor of your own? Or use them to anchor fabric and softly drape sheer fabric over the stage area?

You say you have it for two hours. Do you have access ahead of this block of time to decorate or are you restricted to two hours?

If you only have two hours, you are not going to have enough time to drape organza or tulle from the poles unless you have a backdrop completely assembled that just needs hanging. Rather than try to obscure the view I would just enjoy it.

The amphitheater seating and the red light poles really do focus attention to the area where you will be holding the ceremony.

I would consider hanging a beautiful hanging basket from each of the poles using  a clamp system like this:

If the wedding is at night, as PP’s have said you could use candles or other lighting-I’m not sure if the city would let you use candles. They do have solar powered string and rope lighting that would be very pretty along the railing that would be behind you.

I would keep it very simple and let the beautiful outdoor setting shine.

Just be careful to use something under the clamp so you don’t scratch all the paint off the poles.

Im getting married there too! lol!  Were getting married the second week in august though.  Im just starting to look into ways to decorate, so frusterating!!!  Its hard to find ways to decorate that A. dont detract form the setting and B. you can do in an hour!  The only thing we have for sure decided is that were having golf carts to shuttle people from the parking lot to the site.  Let me know if you find any genious solutions for this place and i will keep you updated too!  Best wedding wishes!

This is very similar to ours!!

terraces holding 2 rows of seats

This last photo is of our ceremony site (reception in the background).  I cant find any good photos right now of the site with the chairs. But basically we had 2 rows of chairs on each tier and a few down on the ‘ground’ level on the bottom tier where we stood for family and grandparents.  We had hanging paper pomanders lining the aisle down from the building (which were suppose to hang lower but whatever).

we had no decorations down the steps to the amphitheater or really anywhere but you could do similar or any sort of flowers or decorations (candles, potted plants) to sit on the ground.  Good luck!

@elliegraye:

Where did you find the golf carts?!?  I have emailed everywhere and no one is getting back to me!  And I cant believe they wont take those posts out!  I just presumed they would for special events, oh dear!  If they wont we should petition for it or something! lol

Do you know anyone who golfs who owns  a cart who might consider lending it?

Try posting a request on your local craigslist- sometimes people will be so helpful.

I definitely would have a small folding table  for the guest book and for signing the papers.

Maybe use a wheelbarrow filled with ice and water bottles for beverages? easy to get in place.
