The Campground Wedding

The campground wedding? I've seen it mentioned in a few different blogs and I'm wondering if it's becoming a new trend. While not for everyone, I think this is a great idea and a wonderful way to celebrate the values and hobbies of a couple that loves to camp, hike, and explore the outdoors. After the ceremony, you could have a wonderfully intimate reception which involved roasting hot dogs (or soy dogs) and marshmallows over a fire, live acoustic guitar music, and no need to go crazy with the florist - you would already have the beautiful setting of trees and nature as your backdrop. The only potential problem would be inclement weather, in which case you would have to have a backup plan or the ability to move the wedding date.

Photos found on The Rock 'n Roll Bride.

I'm not sure if it's a trend or not but I knew as soon as I saw a campground wedding (not this one though) on A Practical Wedding that it was EXACTLY the type of wedding that we wanted. As a wedding photographer myself I see so many types of weddings and none of them ever struck me as "this is sooooo us!" until that moment.

we are doing a version of a campground wedding.
We are getting married at a friends vacation cabin in Slocum which is in East Texas. There will be folks in RV's, Travel Trailers, tents, and we'll have our teardrop "Todah II" there as well.
So far I've collected every piece of old china and silver and stemware I can get my hands on so we can eat off of really cool plates and drink out of really cool glasses that DON'T end up in the trash heap.
We'll be using vintage napkins that I just spent an entire weekend cleaning and pressing.
The table and benches will be made from plywood and 2x4's so that after the wedding they can be reused somewhere on the property. Maybe as a greenhouse...
There will be lots of music. The fiance is a musician and therefore most of his friends are too.
