I got married two weeks ago and wanted to share the unique arbor that I build for our ceremony.

Above is a picture of the final 7-sided “Heptagon” arbor my fiancé (now wife!) wanted. It wasn’t an overly difficult project, but building something with seven sides and those tricky angles can be tough, as well as figuring out the most minimal yet sturdy base. Also figuring out how to build it so it can be transported was also a challenge but ended up being much more simple than I anticipated.

Here is a full build video that shows my process for how it came together, my design choices, and how it looked the day of the ceremony.

Cheers!

Zach not only was the Arbor a Great build but the video about the build was very professionally done. I will have to check out videos of your builds. Thanks for sharing. We live in So. Cal. many moons ago. Do not miss the traffic.

Nicely done – when your video showed you first laying it out on the driveway, I thought it was going to be too small. But the end product looks great

7 is the most powerfully magic number. just kidding – no there isnt – we just liked the look of it aesthetically
