Custom Wedding Photo Backdrop


I built this custom wedding photo backdrop for my wife to use for our wedding reception.
It's made out of solid pine, stained with a minwax stain, and finished with spar urethane.

Three separate panels were built so that it was easier to move and transport. It stands almost 8 feet tall and 9 feet total in length.
It also doubled as a place to hang the table seating chart, which was made out of plexiglass with brass knobs.
All in all, it was a good amount of work, but our guests... and most importantly of all my wife, loved it.

  • What a great build! Both form and function! How did you come up with this design?

    • Thanks Ryobi Nation! I wanted a cool, sleek, design that was both rustic and modern.... to go with the theme of our wedding. My wife gave me a lot of creative freedom with the design. I also made it so that each panel kind of connects and flows into the adjacent panel... and that the lines carried through. Of course I had to get wife's approval first before building it ;)
