CAMP WEDDING: PART ONE

It's almost intimidating for me to write this blog post, because I don't think I can truly communicate how fantastic Camp Wedding was in words. Last week I arrived at Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, WI anticipating to meet fellow wedding vendors I follow on social media, to learn more about the wedding industry, and to explore camp with my camera (plenty proof of that below!). However, I walked away from camp with a newfound inspiration and confidence in myself to be creative. I cannot thank Cherry Blossom Events enough for hosting this wonderfully unique workshop — perfect down to the last camp-worthy detail.

Upon arrival I was given some granola bars, sparkling water, and this backpack full of goodness. I settled into my boy-scout tent and met my wonderful new roommate, Korrine, from Event Essentials. NOTE: I could have spent the entirety of those 3 days at this tent because . . . well, who wouldn't want to stay in this adorable tent overlooking a lake?

I soon met all of the wonderful campers at the main lodge where Lexia Frank photographed portraits and One Fine Day Productions captured this video short:

We jumped right into the learning with a chat about staying inspired as a creative by Jenna Kutcher under a gorgeous canvas tent by Sperry Tent Rentals decorated with vintage pieces by A La Crate Vintage Rentals and beautiful florals by KP Designs

Soon after, El Grito provided their food truck tacos on the beach and I'm officially a fan of sweet potato tacos.

The afternoon sessions included: 

In an honest effort to continue the networking . . . 😉 cocktails continued in the main lodge by Quince & Apple

The first day ended beautifully with a welcome dinner designed by Cherry Blossom Events and catered by Lombardino's. I have never eaten so well while camping! Fresh tomato salad, beef tenderloin, and salted caramel pudding (I almost feel bad calling it pudding because it was so gourmet!) were just some of the family-style meal's options.
