Playful Elopement at Summer Camp

camp inspired wedding

With Labor Day next weekend and the unofficial end of summer near, I thought this fun camp inspired shoot was perfect to share today. Great ideas for those of you planning a summer wedding next year – or for those looking for a fun idea for this upcoming weekend! :) This shoot was styled by Vintage My Wedding and captured by Love Is A Big Deal. It takes place at Camp Wandawega in southern Wisconsin which looks like the perfect place for a wedding, honeymoon or both! I just love the idea of eloping to a cute little cabin for two and playing in the lake for your honeymoon…

  1. What beautiful pictures. I like the bathing suit idea, thats not very common!

  2. Gorgeous Couple, looks like Ken and Barbie ;) Love this idea!

  3. Wow, the photographer did an amazing job capturing all the beautiful, earthy colors in this gorgeous wedding inspiration!

  4. What great photos, really well done.

  5. What a beautiful and creative wedding! Love this blog, we may not be married (yet) but girls’ can dream!


  6. The pictures of the couple on the lake look like something out of The Notebook! It’s absolutely beautiful.

  7. Hey!

    This wedding is the absolute sweetest. I have been looking everywhere for those tiny oars, do you know where they found them?

  8. where is the adorable bathing suit from?!

  9. Beautiful shot! And… I don’t mean to be picky, but I’m a wee grammar nerd – it should read “THEY’RE luring you to their wedding,” not “THEIR luring you”… just saying :) Otherwise – gorgeous!

  10. No fair! My fiance and I met, fell in love, got engaged, and are getting married at the same scout camp! Our creativity has been robbed! ;)

    I guess imitation is the best form of flattery after all!

    • Love Is A Big Deal on:

      Hey Alexis:) Thanks for loving our photos and styling! Let it be known to the interwebs that we don’t know who you are and that we’ve never seen your styling, being that you haven’t gotten married yet:) So I guess you meant you would be flattering us by imitating this shoot? Sounds good to me, since this is an inspiration blog meant to inspire brides just like yourself:) Enjoy!

  11. adorable!
    that suit is amazing.

  12. Love this! So perfect for the end of the summer!

  13. Getting married and spending the honeymoon in the lap of nature can be the perfect way to start off the new journey of life. There can be nothing more soothing than the beautiful places, forest adventures and complete privacy.

  14. Hey, I love your photos, but I have been trying to figure out who to contact to have a wedding there. I have emailed, but can’t find a number to call or information on booking a wedding there. was wondering if you could help in any way! thanks so much, really appreciate it (:
