One of the most important parts of the wedding is the ceremony, which usually happens in from of an altar. This is also where your first kiss and the exchanging of vows will happen. Of course, while saying your vows, photographers are actually everywhere. So it would be nice to ensure that your altar is extra presentable and photograph worthy.

With the many imaging app today and with the majority of you taking photos in every occasion that you go to, it would be nice to ensure that everything looks extra. Fortunately, Anna Price Olson is here to give us altar ideas for your wedding!

Well, since you asked, we searched our real weddings on Brides.com, Instagram accounts, Pinterest pages, and more to find 60 examples of unique wedding altars. That’s right: We searched high and low for the prettiest, jaw-dropping, and just downright cool wedding pergolas and wedding arbors around. Below, you’ll find it all—from a rustic birch teepee to a overflowing floral canopy—so we recommend going in with an open mind. 

Now, with that mindset, we must also note a few things before you start. In this gallery, you’ll also find the newest wedding décor trends around. A few that stand out: Circle installations, palm frond-covered statements, Persian rugs, and macramé anything. But even if being in-the-know isn’t your thing, that’s OK.
