I have no words for this wedding. It’s been almost two years since this day, and I keep coming back to it over and over. It’s one that I’m most proud of. The way Rachel and Evan honored their love, their traditions, and their families on this day was just incredible.
They met at camp as kids, and decided to get married there too because of how much it meant to them and the people they loved. If every single one of my couples could get married at the place that’s most important to them, I think I would be the happiest photographer. It creates such a relaxed atmosphere on a wedding day when you’re in a place that you love and feel comfortable in!
Rachel wore the most beautiful Hailey Paige gown and her bouquet was the biggest I’ve ever photographed, made by the amazing Wildwood Floral Co. Evan cried at least four times, and the two of them just brought me into their family with open arms. AND these two combined their last names to create their own - how freaking cool is that?!
Their details were camp themed in the best way possible. The Ketubah signing, Bedeken, and other Jewish ceremonies happened in buildings all over the campgrounds. The ceremony was intimate, their guests sitting on the same wooden benches where Rachel and Evan had spent summer nights as kids. (Check out their beautiful Chuppah…I die.) Their guests walked from the cocktail hour to the reception on a gravel road through the woods. And tables were arranged by cabins. After their reception, they finished with a huge bonfire and s’mores!
It was perfect, okay? Rachel and Evan, I’m still crushing over you two and this day two years later. <3
