As fall weddings start to wind down, I’ve been reflecting on some of the great weddings I’ve been a part of this year. One of my absolute favorites was a wedding weekend that took place at a summer camp in New Jersey. As the NY Times notes, summer camp extravaganzas are great way to get friends and family together to pitch in to help out at the wedding and of course enjoy the party all weekend long!
The wedding I worked at included a late night bonfire the night before the wedding, a beautiful outdoor ceremony under the trees, cocktail hour at the lodge and a reception in the main dining hall. We used bright, autumnal colors and burlap runners for table decor and amazing homemade centerpieces with sunflowers in giant mason jars. The best part of a camp wedding is that the party can rage all night and everyone gets to retire to a nearby cabin rather than traveling home! I’ll be sure to post all the awesome pictures as soon as they’re available…stay tuned!
