Camp Out For Your Wedding
While the headline might sound a bit too raw for your wedding don’t stop reading just yet. Chris and Jocelyn had running water, electricity, plumbing, and cold beer. We love it when a couple focuses on things meaningful for them and skips a lot of the normal things. While we love having a unique story what we really love about it is how different the day comes out looking in the end. The emotion is more raw, people are more real, and things are more fun for everyone. The day started off for most people in a camp cabin. Jocelyn however looked more like she just came out of a salon.
When we arrived most people were dressed, working on the champagne, whiskey, and beer. After getting in the wedding dress there was a father daughter first look which included homemade limoncello shots. From there we did some bridesmaids and groomsmen photos. When the ceremony came around the guys went missing for 6 preludes and then took 3 processions to figure out the coming down the trail.
Crixus and Mira didn’t make it to the ceremony. They likely would have been the first down the aisle particularly if there were a squirrel down front. If you are wondering they are their dogs. From the engagement session they seems well behaved and likely would have done well with being a flower dog, or a ring bearer. You could see their adventurous side come out in the enthusiasm to climb up on some boulders for photos. The tears were flowing throughout the day as well as the playful silly personalities.
The reception area was an elegant setup with string lights attaching flowery earthy circles. A dance floor was likely rented to complete the center space. Catering was from Qdoba and quite yummy! The cake cutting was really homemade ice-cream cookie sandwiches. Dancing under the stars filled the night along with a sister solo and crazy PhotoBooth photos.
Camp Colorado Review:
Wait a Camp Wedding Venue? When you have some 20 years of pouring your life into a place envisioning your wedding there is not difficult. If you are looking online for places to get married this will likely not come up in your search. If you are trying to find info here is their rental page. It is far enough in the mountain foothills to see it drop 10 degrees between the city and mountains. It is a single lane dirt road back to the camp nestled in the hilly terrain. With no cell reception it is perfect for getting away from the connected life.
We wish more people went the route of the unknown wedding venue, found a beautiful place they love, and made the wedding day their own. It is less traditional, might give your grandparents a heart attack to hear where your doing it, and might make the save the date recipients wonder but at least it will be unique and save on costs. We were married in a history museum next to plaster pigs so we certainly believe in being a little unique in the wedding venue choice.
