This is not only a backdrop, it could be a photo area too.

Did we tell you not to be afraid to play with different shapes? Taken alone, this triangular backdrop may seem like it’s too geometrical for a nature-themed wedding.

The natural color of the pampas grass will always be a classic but using it in different colors also gives it a distinctive feel. Peach colored pampas grass looks so beautiful against Santorini’s blue waters.
