This has been my 2008 Summer project.
We decided to have an outdoor wedding ceremony in Sept of 2008
It started out to be a temporary Pergala set up at my parents house and turned into this
and we couldn’t be happier with it.
After deciding to make it a permanent addition to my parents 5 acre lot.
My father and I designed and built this instead.

We started with a 50’x100’ overgrown area, cleared and leveled it.
And put in a flagstone path and bilt 2 all Cedar Pergala’s.
We started Memorial weekend and will be putting the finishing touches on by Laber Day
Just in time for our Sept. Wedding.
I don’t know what she was so nervous.
Well here is the result.

(I wanted to add more progress pics but I wasn’t sure how)
Any tips let me know

Here’s a link to a tutorial that Martin did for the bookcase contest that tells how to add photos that might be helpful. I hope you can add more photos. I’m interested in seeing them.

Best wishes on your upcoming marriage.

Very cool. Another idea you could use is to build some cedar plant stands. I built 6 stands, 3 pairs of various heights so they stepped from the center. Then my MIL was able to use potted plants and arrangements to decorate, she was able to keep the plants and the stands and they are still in use today…

beautiful…this is really a nice project!!!

on another note—-what you mean your future wife was (IS!!!) nervous up the upcoming wedding??? LOL…we had our wedding in my wife’s parents back yard…that summer was all about painting and building and cleaning up…and no matter how hard you work…she’s gonna be nervous…hug her twice as often…say yes honey…and you will both survive—-then remember the most important thing is not the wedding…but the marriage (it will last a lot longer)...

Congratulations on the wedding. What a great project, I’m going to show your pictures to some friends, who are getting married in their backyard this coming summer. If they likes it as much as I do, I might be helping make something similar.
