“Make Me Wanna Shout!*”
Wedding and event spaces are great opportunities to allow your landscape design imagination to soar. These are fantasy outdoor spaces. The bride is a princess and you get to create her kingdom. Have fun designing them!
Provide a solid parking lot area. Be sure to make wheelchair accessible seating and circulation available. Provide a place for refuge from inclement weather. A covered pavilion is a nice addition. Furnish plenty of seating space and tables. You will need a location for electronic equipment to be set up safely.
An outdoor wedding event space is an outdoor cathedral or ballroom. It needs walls. Connect your design with outdoor scale. Go big! Use large evergreen vegetation for enclosure and as a backdrop for temporary decorations.
One way to make things easier for decorators is to create PVC sleeves along both sides of the aisles for arbors and shepherd hook posts. Then they can be easily removed and replaced as needed. Expensive floral arrangements and garlands can be carried indoors during stormy weather and brought back out just before the ceremony begins. This gives every group the opportunity to create their own custom decorating style.
