A canoe entrance, a dock jump, and a breastfeeding mama round out this fab camp wedding

Gus and Ria were married at Camp Moran State Park on Orcas Island, where they camped and partied hard. Some of our favorite parts include the couple’s son Harlan breastfeeding before the wedding, the canoe entrance to the ceremony, and the joyous dock jump after! They quite literally took the plunge. The reception had dancing, s’mores, and even some skinny-dipping. All is right with this wedding.

Bask in the simplicity of Kerianne & Michael’s lakeside wedding

This couple may have shied away from decorations and traditions, but a little compromise made for a pretty gorgeous but still simple wedding. The bride dealt with a tragic blow just two months before the wedding, so this was a celebration of life and solace. Don’t miss the sweet log details, the bride’s gorgeous flower crown, and the adorable childen’s reading.

Liane & Daniel’s off-the-grid lakeside cabin-in-the-woods wedding

There’s nothing we love more than a tearful groom at the ceremony. And boy does this cutie deliver. Add that to the gorgeous scenery of this island locale, 1001 paper cranes, a signed paddle guest book, an epic dance party, and interactive cardboard sign speeches, and you’ve got a stellar getaway, off-the-grid wedding.
