Camp Grounds Wedding Inspiration

Do you and your spouse-to-be share a love for the outdoors? A woodsy outdoor wedding may just be the perfect theme for your special day. Find a beautiful clearing for the reception, and the details will come naturally. Try sticking with a natural brown and a little green to keep the camping feel. We are loving the birch-style wedding cake, which adds to the overall natural feel. If you are an outdoor adventurer, putting this wedding together will be a breeze.
