While one of the most momentary, fleeting walks you’ll ever take, the procession to exchange your wedding vows is also sure to be one of the most memorable. The emotional energy of this short and transient trek, with your loved ones looking on and your future awaiting you, in perhaps unmatched by any other celebratory rite.
This procession and the subsequent ceremony set the tone for the entire celebration to follow, often introducing the mood through elements that will carry over into the reception, bringing cohesion and harmony. When our designers lay down the path of your aisle, their hope is to mirror the singularly magical feeling of the moment.
Today we look back fondly on some aisles that were nearly as memorable to design and create as they were to walk down.
