Summer Chapel

A green lawn and perennial garden are transformed into a wedding chapel with a pair of salvaged French doors strategically placed to create an entryway. Be sure to allow enough space between the columns to allow the bride, her skirt and her escort to walk through easily.


Vintage French doors:
Pair of garden columns
Pair of garden urns
Garden flowers like peonies, lilac and spirea.
Guest seating

Tip: Place columns and doors on a level ground to avoid wobbling. Fill hollow columns with a sandbag to anchor in place.
