Five Fresh Wedding Backdrops

We’re constantly on the lookout for creative ideas on our travels, out to dinner, on walks, and as we peruse magazines and books. We have always had the approach of no two weddings are the same, so our designs are fresh and unique to each one of our couples. Here are a few of our recent favorite backdrops that you can personalize and make your own by creating stylized color stories, using various blooms and succulents, different lighting, and even portraits or pictures that are totally you.

crepe paper wedding backdrop

For a wedding this summer we create this sherbet-hued crêpe paper screen for a church ceremony, adorned with a  few clusters of pale peach begonias for added whimsy. The couple wanted something to dress up this blank brick wall but nothing that competed with the church or the wedding party. It was a delightful happy medium! {Photo via iPhone!}

Jessica and Dalton’s estate wedding was breathtaking. Totally and utterly. We used their pool as the focal point for the ceremony and it anchored the entire nuptials. We dressed up the pool with Ravenna Bloom’s floating floral orbs. If you have a water feature like a pool, lake or a fountain at your wedding location, cluster floating candles {nestle them in glass discs intended for floating} and lots of blooms for a similar effect.

Megan and Logan’s wedding was absolute ridiculous fun! This handcrafted beer while was amazing and, while it wasn’t the ceremony backdrop, was a perfect photo backdrop. Create your own wooden backdrop from recycled palettes and customize with paint or lettering. Instant focal point!

Megan and Ian’s coastal wedding was breathtaking. While we certainly didn’t need too much in terms of decor and didn’t want to compete with this million dollar Hotel Del Coronado view,  breezy muslin fabric flags did the trick for complimenting the wedding. We used fabric and bamboo sticks found at Home Depot to create this dreamy installation of two dozen flags.

AJ and Malia’s spring wedding was celebrated in an ultra funky loft-style space that we wanted to warm up to create a comfy cafe-style ambiance. We spray painted assorted picture frames in sea glass blue, canary yellow and silver, and the team at Blue Danube draped market lights down the heavy chocolate velvet curtains already in place. Lights = instant ambiance!
