Arches & Alter Decor

The Edison & Ford Winter Estates is a beautiful natural backdrop for any wedding ceremony. Being a botanic garden, it’s easy to see why so many brides chose to get married here. Although the grounds add a breathtaking back-drop, many brides chose to enhance the natural beauty of the grounds by adding to their ceremony site with arches and alter decor. The results are breath-taking and create picture-perfect moments for our brides. With nature as your background, its easy to dress up the ceremony or simply add to it. Check out what some of our past brides have done to create their fairytale ‘I-do’ location!
