A Lakeside Grand Isle Wedding: Anaphora's Ground Floral Arch Takes the Spotlight

Grace and Daniel celebrated their special day surrounded by friends and family, and the stunning backdrop of Vermont’s beautiful Lake Champlain. Grace and Daniel wanted the ground  floral arch so that the view of the lake was not blocked by a structure. They contacted Anaphora to bring their vision to life with this stunning display!

The ground floral arch was a core element to their ceremony.  They began with an open semi-circle, but later in the ceremony, the couple’s mothers closed the circle around them to symbolize the unity in a marriage.

Elaborating on this further, Grace and Daniel’s officiant, Janet Dunn, told us “The symbolism of the circle represents completeness and a committed love that has no beginning nor end. Closing the circle around this couple was a very moving wedding ceremony ritual!”

Ground floral arches are becoming increasingly popular, especially for couples who don’t want to obstruct any special views their ceremony space may have (but still want to add florals to their special day)  It is also easy to repurpose those florals later on during the reception. For example, Grace and Daniel ended up using the florals on the venue’s porch and the garland on the stairs.

From budding blooms as escort cards, to a typewriter guest book and classic wrap-around porch, Grace and Daniel’s wedding at the Grand Isle Lake House is one we’ll be swooning over for a long time! See all the beautiful details below.
