Can’t Find the Perfect Ceremony Space? Build It Yourself!

Need some inspiration to blow away the Tuesday blahs? As if the rolling hills in the background of this outdoor wedding space were not enough, this bride and groom pair was married in a unique and fascinating open air wooden chapel. The couple said their vows in the bride’s parents’ backyard, and it was the bride’s brother who built the structure complete with pretty windows and doors and a striking yellow altar.

The chandelier is one of the details that really make this ceremony space a success. And how about that amazing dresser? The whole color scheme is so pretty and rustic without being too country.

The chapel looks like it was open enough to retain an outdoor wedding feel while also giving wedding guests the impression of being in a cozy, private, and intimate space. It’s the best of both worlds!

    This actually reminds me very strongly of the church in Greenland where the last Viking wedding took place before the colony vanished.

    Not that that will happen to this couple! It’s just that the ceremony space really reminds me of it. I have a link only to one picture; the similarity is even more striking from other angles (… which I can’t show). It’s really lovely.

    Love, love, LOVE!

    Pssst: if they’re done with that fabulous yellow dresser, I might be able to bring myself to find a use for it. No? Oh well. It’s not like we’re not already desperately trying to find space and uses for at least eight dressers around here.

    If we had this much space in our backyard we would so be copying this idea!

    That’s really clever and beautiful!

    My goodness, this is so lovely. Had we not chosen a spot with tons of natural beauty, we’d be stealing this idea too!
