While I love the grounds of our venue, I always pictured it a little dressed up for the occasion. A backdrop is an easy way to achieve that, but there was no way I would be able to transport a triptych of distressed barn doors, 1,000 origami cranes, tangle-prone strips of crepe paper, or strung up coffee filters—no matter what Pinterest would have me believe.
In my browsing I had seen some simple but beautiful ceremony backdrops. Some pretty writing on a sheet of fabric would pack very easily into a suitcase and be relatively simple to set up as well. So I set out to emulate these backdrop inspirations, but with our own wedding aesthetic in mind.
