WEDDING ON THE PLAINS


This chapel and reception hall were constructed of recycled materials for the event and then disassembled. The forms celebrate the union of the couple through the broad upward gesture of the chapel made of saplings and the vaulted "cosmos" cover of the reception area. We made the cover, a Lamella truss, of small pieces of dimension lumber bolted together to span the forty foot width. The bride departed her ancestral home, walked under the cover, and joined the
processional to the altar. It was a beautiful fall evening. As the sun settled on the ceremony the festive lights in the hall illuminated the reception that followed.
