Wedding Details: The Altar

One of the most difficult parts of the decor was figuring out how to construct a beautiful altar at the train depot's white arch where we'd say our vows.  It was Caleb who came up with the swagging material idea, which I latched onto instantly, but even with the gathered points and flowers, I wasn't sure it would look okay.

It was the day before the wedding that my mom realized there was a hearth in the depot's storage room.  With that addition, everything immediately came together and looked "on purpose".

My favorite part is how so many people worked on it.  I hung up the fabric, but my sister Taylor, matron of honor Millie, and makeup artist Kelsey did all the flowers, and some groomsmen moved the hearth.  I'm so pleased with how it turned out!  For me, it was perfect.

  1. I love getting the inside scoop of your wedding details, Lindsay. It's so much nicer than they way things end up displayed on a wedding blog. I've always enjoyed your honest and open voice.

  2. I love this! You turned a 'simple' arch into something so very you. What a great idea!
