Our woodland chapel is one of the most popular ceremony spots on the property. The secluded clearing has hemlock benches and a dramatic log pergola. We love seeing how each couple makes the chapel their own.

Here are a few ideas for how you can decorate a woodland chapel for your wedding inspired by some real Maine weddings.

Flowers and Draping

The combination of flowers and draping can be done in so many beautiful combinations. You can choose symmetrically or by having a single focal point.

Bold Colors

With the beautiful woods as a backdrop, adding big, bold colors can make a stunning statement. We love the look of these rich reds, pinks, and burgundies.

Bright Pop

Another sweet contrast to the woodland setting is adding pops of color with bright colors. This look with the hanging yellow flowers was an adorable complement to this adorable couple

Walkway with Flower Petals

To add romantic drama to the setting, you can line the walkways with flower petals from your bouquet and color scheme. Your florist can help you choose the right petals and arrange to get them for you.

As is

We also think the woodland chapel looks stunning as-is. The bridge and pathway open up into the natural beauty of the woods. Only a few steps away from the tent, barn, and house, it can feel romantic and remote.
