Sweet YMCA Camp Wedding: Annie + Matt

YMCA Camp Campbell Wedding

Oh, the camp wedding. One of our ultimate favorite kinds. And today’s real wedding is definitely no exception. Annie + Matt decked out their day with a sense of sweetness + well put together details that made their rustic California summer camp setting feel worthy of the prettiest celebration. Annie says, We love the being outdoors, camping, fun and games – so a camp wedding seemed like the perfect thing. We tried to keep the details low-key yet fun. S’mores escort cards, a jenga guestbook, and little girls blowing bubbles.

Sounds pretty perfect to us! Big thanks to Dylan & Sara Photography for the gorgeous photography and congrats to the newlyweds on a super sweet day!

Rustic Hamptons, New York Wedding: Jen + Moritz

new york wedding

After 3 long years of enduring a cross atlantic long distance relationship, Jen + Moritz tied the knot: just the two of them at a courthouse. After over a year of being legally married, they decided they wanted to throw a celebration to share their happiness with the people in their lives who had watched their love grow over the years. A rustic, 100-year-old estate in the East Hamptons of New York provided the perfect setting to mingle with their guests and share in a ceremony that didn’t feel at all like an afterthought just because they’d already made things official. There were gorgeous woodland-inspired florals, a gorgeous communal reception dinner, and lots of romantic candlelight later on in the evening. Lucky for us, Golden Hour Studios was there to perfectly capture it all so we could feel like we were right there ourselves!

We love Jen’s ultra-romantic dress. Those sleeves – to die for. It’s the Ubela dress by Rosa Clara 2014 Soft Collection for all the ladies out there swooning over it, too!

Hamptons estate wedding

With our unique situation in mind, we wanted our ceremony to be our “real” marriage – where we could express the love we have for each other before each of our family and friends; not something just for “show”. Our ceremony was written by us together along with the help of our two closest friends who officiated our marriage. After researching countless alternatives in lieu of exchanging rings we went with something completely different. We asked our guests to wrap a string around their wrist and eventually each of us were bound together forming a powerful bond. “With this string, we as family and friends are all connected and form a powerful bond of the most important people in Moritz and Jen’s lives…” This was the quote that was read before our guests offered their approval for us to become partners for life.

This is a tough question and it's hard to answer. Every minute of the day and weekend for that matter was everything we dreamed of.

Make your wedding is truly your own and don't let others convince you to stick to the usual. Go for something different to make your day memorable and most importantly, where possible, shoot for a wedding weekend so you can see all of your guests the next day and laugh about all of the exciting moments. Our guests traveled from Europe and from the East Coast to be with us for the weekend and it still wasn't enough time to see everyone. One more thing - no one really told us about the "post wedding blues" and we had it bad. We were sad to see everyone go and that all of our planning and hard work was over so fast. Try to plan something right after the wedding like your honey moon. We are now excited to plan a trip to Madagascar in 2015.
