Recipe: Wedding Ceremony Altar

A La Crate Vintage Rentals Ceremony Backdrop Recipe

For the recipe we used our Cinnamon Indigo Persian RugThis vintage Ethan Allen rug is an absolute gem. At 13.5 feet long by 10 feet wide, it takes up quite a bit of space, so make sure that wherever you are going to put together your own alter there is plenty of room for it. The colors are very warm and rich, so this rug works very well to warm up a barn setting or an industrial location, like the new A LA CRATE warehouse where we set up our altarBut, you could also use it outdoors in a park or a field! Wherever you put it, make sure you have something above it, like a beam or a sturdy tree limb to hang the chandelier. Ahhh, the chandelier. We had such a blast putting together this beautiful DIY using mini herb bouquets and bell jars and loved the moody, cozy vibe that it gave to our altar. Stay tuned for our next post where we give you the details (with pictures) of how to make this cool and inexpensive lighting option. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t point out our beautiful models – our very own Sarah and Jeff!  Aren’t they looking so sharp?  It was such fun to see these two all dressed up for our faux wedding ceremony. Jeff wore his wedding suit and I styled Sarah’s look using a fabulous dress that she had bought for her own wedding a few years back. She ended up not using it on her big day, so it was such fun to get her in it for this wedding! 

So, let’s just wrap up here with the links and details to the two items you need for this recipe:
Cinnamon Indigo Persian Rug, $95
Rustic Metal Chandelier, $35
