Flower-Filled Frame: Or, you could take it to the next level by filling an oversize frame entirely with flowers, like fluffy white hydrangeas and blush-pink roses.

Floating Horizontal Frame: When your wedding ceremony space is as lush and pretty as this couple's, an unadorned floating-frame backdrop turns the setting into a work of art.

Floral Frame: Instead of a typical ceremony arch, this couple requested a unique flower-embellished frame as their wedding backdrop.

Framed Fabric Backdrop: Add a shot of color and whimsy to your ceremony setting by framing a piece of your favorite patterned fabric.
