Rustic Chic Arches

When you dream of a rustic wedding outdoors, don’t limit your design to just burlap and sunflowers. This glamorous outdoor wedding was inspired by the wedding ceremony from Twilight. The contrast of the twine, rhinestones and bright pink flowers add a captivating focal point to this wedding ceremony in the woods.

Romantic Coastal Arches

We love the combination of the wooden arch, soft draping and modern white lanterns that accent this Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach wedding ceremony! The light pink florals, with a few pops of color, perfectly accent the driftwood to create a unique design for this oceanview wedding ceremony.

The Hilton Clearwater Beach provides the perfect backdrop for a Tampa Bay beach wedding with your toes in the sand. Accenting the natural beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, shades of purple add the perfect amount of color to the bamboo arch, adorned in sheer draping.

“Most couples have a tendency to gravitate to a white fabric arch, but for a chic, organic, beach wedding, we opted to keep things a bit more natural by doing a bamboo and burlap arch accented with white hydrangea pullbacks,” Tampa Bay wedding planner Staci Mandikas of UNIQUE Weddings & Events explained. “The natural color against the white sand is such a beautiful contrast.”
