DIY camp wedding at camp wandawega

Get ready for a swoon-worthy wedding! Rachel and Mike were married last June at the beautiful Camp Wandawega in Wisconsin. There’s a reason Camp Wandawega is one of our favorites. And let’s just this this out of the way right now: that dress is to dang die for.

Getting ready at camp is not for the prissy. It’s usually hot and with no A/C in the bunkhouses it can be a challenge. But Rachel and Mike’s wedding day was beautiful, a little breeze of Lake Wandawega and an emerald green dress that Rachel kept a surprise from almost everyone.

Camp Wandawega wedding doesn’t need much fanfare in order to be spectacular. Rachel and Mike had just enough details to complement the setting without overwhelming it. Bright wildflowers, a golden moose or two and cafe lights under a tent on a summer night. Dear Camp Wandawega, can we move in? Will work for turns on the tire swing.

Their ceremony overlooking the lake was full of personality and happy tears. With friends and family presiding over the ceremony, singing and doing the readings, a wedding ceremony at camp is one of the most intimate spots we’ve found for a wedding.

As if you needed more proof, John and Maura of Stoffer Photography are incredibly gifted. Just look at these ridiculous pictures of Rachel and Mike.

We’re obsessed with everything about this place and these two (not a creepy way, we promise!) And after our job was done we went ahead and let them party well into the night while Teresa and David built one of their famous bonfires for the “have to have it” late night s’mores. Congrats you two crazy kids, let’s do this again for an anniversary real soon.
