Chuppah Style

October 21, 2015

Looking for a dramatic focal for your ceremony?  Chuppah is a tapestry attached to four poles. The word chuppah means covering or protection, and is intended as a root or covering for the bride and groom at their wedding.  Traditionally used in a Jewish ceremony.

They can be customized based on your design style. Family provided tallits can be used to create “the ceiling”, the cover. Satin fabric draped by itself, or adorned with flowers. Perhaps just the four corners, or make a statement with a floral mass all the way across the front!

Looking for something natural? Local driftwood or birch wood creates these natural inspired chuppahs. Accented with touches of dripping Spanish Moss, amaranthus, etc… a nod at the local lowcountry elements.

When using these outdoors, we have to be considerable to the wind conditions. Especially when utilizing fabrics, the structures must be secured and anchored accordingly.
