 There are so many ways to get creative and design an impact around the ceremony- whether in the seating, maybe a custom aisle runner, florals on the alter or arch, etc.  Even the simplest of details can make a difference. After all, that is what everyone is there to celebrate, there is already a beautiful couple, why not have some beautiful scenery? Today, we’re sharing a round up of some of our favorite aisles from weddings past, that may help inspire your wedding day!

For a ceremony overlooking a bluff into the Harbor in Newport, we built an aisle over the house pool, which we thought made a pretty dramatic look!

Another way we like to liven up a ceremony is with different seating. Here, large linen ottomans provided totally unexpected but still sophisticated seating for this river front wedding.

To dress up and define a beachfront wedding, a white carpeted aisle runner is laid down.

Rustic wooden church pews, and a greenery covered chuppa were so simple and not fussy…and this is a great easy and inexpensive way to have a tailored and elegant ceremony.

In order to keep this aisle blanketed with lush white rose petals pristine for the bride’s entrance, we had ushers seat the guests from the outside in… This is also way easier for guests and fills the rows so you don’t have an empty seat or two in the middle.

Depending on your church’s rules and interiors, going super simple with a single bloom or ribbons may be all you need. Or for a more over the top romantic feel, candlelight lanterns, or boughs of greenery and flowers can transcend a drab sanctuary.

Of course, we’ve all seen the monogrammed aisle runners out there but embellished edges and shepherd’s hooks with matching ribbon swaying in the breeze, definitely helped elevate this ceremony’s look.
