This stunning campground wedding took place in the desert mountains of Southern California at the ranch where Laura and Elizabeth live and work. Every single detail of this day was so beautiful, unique and intentional. The fact that these lovely bride’s said “I do” in a place so special and near to their heart is so meaningful!
Laura and Elizabeth started the day getting ready in the camp dorms, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Everyone came together to help make this day absolutely perfect for them! Once they were ready, they shared the sweetest first look on a small island of their favorite lake. After a few tears and “oohs” and “ahhs” at each others beauty, we drove into some fun wedding party photos before heading to the ceremony!
The ceremony area had the greatest decor that I just couldn’t get enough of! They had a retro bike with a basket for cards and a guest book that had everyone dip their fingers in ink and leave prints. I had never seen this before and loved it! The best part, however, was the arch where they spoke their vows. Laura made that arch by hand and was working on it all morning before getting ready! It was incredible!
After a touching ceremony, we explored the ranch to take advantage of its many stunning backdrops for some romantic photos! The golden light shining through the trees was truly something else. We walked back over to the lake for blue hour, where I took some of my favorite photos ever. This lake and the bride is so important to Laura and Elizabeth because they watch the sunset their together as often as possible. They were even down to hop in a kayak for some fun adventurous shots!
They ended the night by dancing under the market lights and soaking in all the love around them. It was truly a perfect day and I am so happy for these gorgeous brides!
This campground wedding truly has my heart!
