The chapel was decorated by an arbor made by the bride’s father. Her uncle, David Youngblood, decorated the chapel. The cedar beam arbor was adorned across the top, front and sides with a colorful, fragrant array of spring flowers including freesia, ranunculas, dahlias, garden roses, spirit roses, oriental lilies, blue hydrangeas, fresh forsythia and other flowers. A crystal chandelier hung from the center of the arbor.
