We have such a sweet rainy-day summer camp wedding to share with you today! Marea + Jed were married at the Frost Valley YMCA in Claryville, New York, where Jed attended camp as a child. They wanted to bring new memories to this very special place and host a relaxed + fun weekend in the woods with their guests, who mostly traveled in from out of state. I absolutely love the custom illustrations Marea + Jed created and included into their day. It’s such a clever idea to brand your celebration with a one-of-a-kind logo or design!
I’m crazy about Marea’s woodsy bouquet! So perfect for the setting.
It was pouring rain all day, but once we started the ceremony, the sun broke through and started shining.
And how rad are these polaroid portraits of Marea + Jed?!
Don't let the stress of planning the wedding drive a wedge between you. If you start to feel tension, stop whatever wedding-related task you are doing and just spend time together. At the end of the day it is about you as a couple, not the invitations, or the food, or the place settings.
